Review

`autobiography is a poorly developed genre in Islamic literature ... Mir's autobiography, therefore, has a special interest as a rare example from the eighteenth century.' Zikr-i Mir, The Islamic World, March 31, 2000.

`We are deeply grateful to C.M. Naim for enabling us to savour something of the human world of Muslim northern India, before all became enveloped by the British and their utilitarian purposes.' Zikr-i Mir, The Islamic World, March 31, 2000.

`enables us to savour what it was to be human in the cultivated Muslim world of eighteenth-century nothern India.' Zikr-i Mir, The Islamic World, March 31, 2000. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
