The complete series is divided into six volumes:
- Up to 1904: early years
- 1905-13: the formative period
- 1914-22: the middle period
- 1923-30: the peak period
- 1931-38: later years
- Since 1938: legacy of his thought
I have already presented a synopsis of these phases in Iqbal: An Illustrated Biography (2006), which I wrote in English but which is now being translated into several languages, including Urdu, regional languages of Pakistan, Pesrian, German, Bosnian and some others.
