TL;DR: In this article, the authors of the 1999 British-Kuwait Friendship Society Prize in Middle Eastern Studies presented a ground-breaking work on a subject that has been almost totally neglected.
Abstract: Winner of the 1999 British-Kuwait Friendship Society Prize in Middle Eastern Studies Described by the BKFS reviewer as "A ground-breaking work on a subject that has been almost totally neglected" "Why write history in Persian?" Persian historical writing has received little attention as compared with Arabic, especially as seen in the early (pre-Mongol) period Within the larger context of the development of Islamic historiography from the tenth through the twelfth centuries, the case of Persian historical writing demands special attention Discussions tend to concentrate on its sources in pre-Islamic Persian and in Arabic works, while the reasons for its emergence, its connections with Iranian and Arabic models, its political and cultural functions, and its reception, have been virtually ignored This study answers these questions and addresses issues relating to the motivation for writing the works in question; its purpose; the role of the author, patrons and audiences; the choice of language and the reasons for that choice; the place of historical writing in the broader debate over the suitability of Persian for scholarly writing

TL;DR: A livre retrace l'evolution de la judicature and de sa place au sein de l'Etat abbasside, en restituant les dimensions spatiales, temporelles et sociales of l'administration judiciaire, ainsi que the dynamique des relations entre les cadis d'Iraq and le califat.
Abstract: En 132/750, les Abbassides s'emparerent du pouvoir au terme d'un mouvement denoncant l'injustice des Umayyades La reforme de l'appareil judiciaire, contribuant a affermir leur legitimite, fut une des realisations majeures de la nouvelle dynastie La centralisation de la justice, l'uniformisation juridique et l'etroite association des cadis au souverain firent de la judicature un instrument politique essentiel aux yeux du califat Les Abbassides ne pouvaient pourtant prevoir les consequences de cette reforme qui devait, a terme, fragiliser les fondements de leur autorite En diminuant la dependance des cadis vis-a-vis des pouvoirs locaux, ils ouvrirent la voie a de nouvelles revendications Il n'allait plus de soi, desormais, que les cadis tenaient leur autorite judiciaire du calife Ce livre retrace l'evolution de la judicature et de sa place au sein de l'Etat abbasside, en restituant les dimensions spatiales, temporelles et sociales de l'administration judiciaire, ainsi que la dynamique des relations entre les cadis d'Iraq et le califat Lorsque les Abbassides perdirent la realite du pouvoir au profit des Būyides, en 334/945, la judicature etait metamorphosee D'un fonctionnaire au service de son delegant, le cadi etait devenu un magistrat capable de defendre son autonomie judiciaire
