Living Islamic History

This chapter focuses on the Tarikh-I Chingiz Khan. It discusses, from a comparative perspective, the celebrated Jami، al-tawarikh of Rashid al-Din and its abridgement in Tarikh-I Chingiz Khan. The main point of interest in the chapter is what the author of Tarikh-I Chingiz Khan chose to include, what he chose to omit, and why. While the Jami، al-tawarikh is a history of the Mongols, of the rise of Chiniz Khan, of the Islamic world and the contact between Islam and other races, the Tarikh-I Chingiz Khan is a book of genealogy, whose purpose is to eulogize the virtues of Chingiz Khan, his pious works and the qualities of his rule.

Keywords:   Jami، al-tawarikh, Rashid al-Din, Mongols, book of genealogy, Chingiz Khan
