Summary
This volume deals with the part of al-Tabari's History covering the years 12 and 13H (633-35), in the Khaliphates of Abu Bakr al-Siddiq and 'Umar b. al-Khattab, much of the narratives contained in it, which are lengthy and detailed, are concerned with the first Muslim conquests in Iraq and Syria. 

This volume is also of  value in revealing the content and character of Islamic historical debates in the late 2nd/8th century. In addition, they permit us to elucidate and reconstruct an early harmonizing tendency in Islam that undoubtedly had a significant effect on the way later Muslims viewed their earliest history. 

The translation is preceded by an introduction analyzing the tendencies of Sayf and his party as revealed in this volume. Extensive notes accompany the text for the benefit of historians in other fields, as well as of Islamic specialists.
