The need of critical and explanatory translations into Western languages of the more important works of Arabic historians has long been recognized; many such translations, indeed, have been published here and abroad during the past several decades. It is obvious that a translation makes a historical source accessible to a much wider range of readers and researchers than would otherwise be the case, and thus widens the horizons of our knowledge and opens new fields for further research.
