The Baburnama: memoirs of Babur, prince and emperor
Random House Publishing Group, Sep 10, 2002 - Biography & Autobiography - 554 pages
Both an official chronicle and the highly personal memoir of the emperor Babur (1483–1530), The Baburnama presents a vivid and extraordinarily detailed picture of life in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India during the late-fifteenth and early-sixteenth centuries. Babur’s honest and intimate chronicle is the first autobiography in Islamic literature, written at a time when there was no historical precedent for a personal narrative—now in a sparkling new translation by Islamic scholar Wheeler Thackston.
This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes notes, indices, maps, and illustrations.

Definitely a good read. It gives a detailed account of the life of Babur, his ambition, failings, sense of judgement, generosity, filial duty, and of course the persistence in the face of defeat and death. You get to see Babur as an emperor and Babur as a poet. Read full review
