dc.description.abstractThe core of the present work is the translation of the Akhb'lr al-dawlat al-SaljUqiyya, an original source for the history of the Great Saljriq sultans and of the later Saljllqs of Iraq and Western Persia (429-590/1038- 1194). The thesis has been divided into four chapters. The first chapter is introductory and is aimed at identifying the author of the Akhb'dr al-dawlat al- Saljtiqiyya'and examining the various features of the work and the possible sources to which its author might have had access. Moreover, a general historical survey of the period with which the text deals has been included. The remaining three chapters are devoted to a translation of the text; each chapter is followed by a commentary, where the fullest possible use is made of the other primary and secondary sources for the history of the period. The events after the death of sultan MasIUd in 547/1152 until the collapse of the dynasty in 590/1194 lack a coherent pattern in the Akhbar al-dawlat al- SalJllqiyXa. To arrange them in a better order, three appendices have been added to the thesis. An additional index has also been provided. At the end of the thesis a genealogical table of the SaljIIq sultans and maps of the territories which they ruled have been included.en
