New military history research: Safavid rise in 16th century Persia

Ali Anooshahr presents his research in Iranian Studies on an early Safavid chronicle.  Anooshahr states that the history presented in the chronicle by a number of Safavid veterans of the early 16th century Safavid wars to take Persia runs counter to modern understanding of this region and period.  Anooshahr states that the Safavid rise was not the result of an ‘apocalyptic explosion’ but rather a carefully planned campaign by Shah Isma’il’s military commanders.
