Nadir Shah

Description The volume contains a critical evaluation of the achievements, conquests, and character of Nadir Shah, one of the greatest Persian rulers in 17th-18th century. Besides being a great conqueror and ruler of a great empire, he was a good administrator, generous donor, patron of arts and literature and religiously liberal towards the Christian missionaries. The volume is based on a critical study of the contemporary sources of history in Persian and other languages. It is a scholarly work of immense labour and presents a realistic, balanced portrayal of Nadir Shah and clears a few misconceptions about him to some extent. The prose diction is elegant, literary in stance. Each conclusion is supported by references given as footnotes. It is a reliable source as reference material for scholars and researchers.[edit]
