Parties and Politics at the Mughal Court, 1707-1740
Description
About the Author

Satish Chandra is Secretary-General of the Society for Indian Ocean Studies and the Secretary of the twelve volumes comprising History of India Scheme prepared by the Indian History Congress. Earlier he was Professor of History, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi; and Chairman of the University Grants Commission, New Delhi.About the Book

This important book provides a new perspective on the decline of the Mughal empire, departing from the existing appraisement of Aurangzeb, the functioning of the Mughal nobility and the crisis of the jagirdari system. It re-examines the first half of the eighteenth century, which was a period of growing anarchy and cultural stagnation. The post-Aurangzeb period has been presented as one in which struggle for liberal and orthodox policies was linked with the struggle to make the wazir a key player.

The author studies the role of the nobility in the downfall of the Mughal empire-a subject of unresolved conflict-with special reference to the position of various ethnic and religious groups in the nobility after the death of Aurangzeb, the basis of the rise and struggle of parties at the court and its impact, the rise of the Marathas, Jats and other indigenous elements, and developments in the field of administration. In a new preface to this edition, he contends that the core of the crisis of the Mughal Empire is linked to the collapse of the jagirdari system with a deepening social crisis and increased factionalism in the ruling classes leading to a breakup of a central polity.

In this classic work, Professor Chandra revisits the political history of this period by using for the first time valuable records, letters and a number of monographs hitherto unavailable to other researchers.

First published in 1959, the present edition will continue to be an invaluable resource for historians and students of medieval and late-medieval India.

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...
