Ahmad S. Dallal

This chapter surveys the prevailing traditional as well as revisionist accounts in the historiography of the Islamic eighteenth century. It outlines the arguments of the book, and its distinctive approach of identifying transformations in cultural traditions and explaining the historical contexts in which they take place. The chapter discusses the rationale for setting different beginning and end points for the period under examination. It also identifies the major figures studied in the book, and the regional traditions that shaped their experiences.

Keywords:   Historiography of the Islamic eighteenth century, Decline thesis, Regional reform traditions, Social history verses intellectual history
