About the Book:

The Tabaqat-i-Akbari is a history of India from the early Muslim invasions to the thirty-eight years of Akbar's reign. The work was planned in three parts and was started and completed by the author, Khawaja Nizamuddin Ahmed Bakshi, at his own initiative, basing it on a study of several historical works and such independent information as he could collect from various sources. His history of Akbar's reign is based on personal observations, on information obtained from first hand sources and probably to some extent on Abul-Fadle's the Akbarnama.

The author had been in the service of Emperor Akbar throughout his life. The importance of the Tabaqat-i-Akbari lies in the fact that it was the first comprehensive history of India and that it served as the authority on which several later historical works were based.

Many historians like Elliot, Erskine, Lees, Wolseley Haig and Beni Prasad regarded Tabaqat as `amongst the best Persian histories and the most reliable sources of our information`. It was initially rendered into English by Brajendranath De (1852-1932), a retired I.C.S. Officer, and later on taken up by Baini prashad of the Museum House, Calcutta.

A monumental work which will inspire researchers for all times to comes.
