Rizwan Ali Rizvi
Throughout history Nizam al-Mulk has enjoyed an unrivalled reputation as a statesman, a thinker on public administration and a builder of a great Empire. He offers a complete contrast to Niccolo Machiavelli, who is recognised to have influenced Western politics ever since his Prince was written, and who is not merely amoral, his thought is definitely immoral. He served a great Empire having sufficient resources, both financial and military; there was to be no need for adopting immoral means for achieving its goals. Tusi’s main concern was the consolidation of the Sultanate’s power for the welfare of the people and the strengthening and glorification of Islam.
In this book, the learned author concentrates mainly on the political ideas of Nizam al-Mulk. He has tried to work out the theoretical and practical aspects of government enunciated and enacted by Nizam al-Mulk in the true spirit of Islam.
