Sharipov Muhamad Marufovich


Proceeding from the mediaeval historic sources, the author of the article dwells on a scantily studied issue dealing with military-political rivalry between Gurids and Gaznevids dynasties. The author discloses the issues related to Gurids-Gaznevids confrontation resorting to the data of narrative sources including: «Tabakot-i Nosiri» by Minhoj-i Siroj, «Ta`rich-i Bayhaqi» by Abulfazl Bayhaqi, «Tarjuma-i Ta`rich-i Yamini» by Jurfodiqoni, «Habib-us-siyar» by Khondamir and etc. In his article the author summarizes comprehensively the military-political confrontation of the early Gurids and Gaznevids, in particular, the events referring to the XI-th century when Gur region was not an independent country yet and it was ruled by appanage Emirs. At that period almost in all battles Gaznevid rulers were considered as winners
