This chapter explores literary and historiographic renderings of Daghestani rebellions from 1877 and 1921 across Arabic and Russian sources. It focuses in particular on the Arabic historiography that coalesced around the 1877 rebellion that swept through Daghestan and Chechnya following Shamil's surrender. These historiographic texts are read alongside the Arabic poetry of major Daghestani writers, especially Ḥasan al-Alqadārī and Najm al-Dīn al-Ḥutsā. This chapter is linked to the chapter that follows through its exploration of the representation of ḤājjīMurād in vernacular Daghestani literatures.
