BABUR: Founder of the Mughal Empire in India
BABUR: Founder of the Mughal Empire in India
Description
From the Jacket:

The influence of the Great Mughals on every aspect of Indian life - social, economic and political - has been profound and far-reaching. But historical accounts of their life and career are not only few, but also outdated; most of them having been written fifty years before, Erskine's Baber and Humayun, for instance, was published as far back as 1854; 131 years ago to be exact. As for Babur, his biographers have devoted far greater space to his Central Asian career than to the last five years (1525-30) of his life in Hindustan. Besides, several aspects of his cultural and political background, the early influence which shaped his character, his conception of sovereignty, and his administrative structure have not received adequate attention.

This study concentrates on Babur's Indian career. With the aid of a large number of original sources, it uncovers several hitherto unknown facets of Babur's political career, examines the problems involved in establishing and consolidating Mughal rule in India, and advances our understanding of Mughal society, polity, economy and administration. The author deals with these aspects with sensitivity and insight.

A truly outstanding work of scholarship which no student of medieval Indian history will be able to do without and which will make engaging reading for the ordinary reader as well.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
