Description

Excerpts From Review :

'A welcome volume, for no recent work has given much attention to the subjects considered here...' - Catherine B. Asher, The Journal of Asian Studies (US).

'What it [the book] does, it does very well and is marked by the thoroughness of scholarship and editing that characterize the books of Habib.' - Pratibha Iyer, Indian Review of Books.

'The volume bears the imprint of a scholarship that has become unfashionable in these post-modern times...Collectively the articles provide the most authentic and representative statement on Akbar to date.' - Parvathi Menon, Frontline.

'The essays are of some interest in point of detail; by way of interpretation, however, these merely adhere to the well-known stereotype of the centralized Mughal state, a characterization that has been modified in recent years.' - Lakshmi Subramanian, Telegraph

'To the question, "does this volume constitute a valuable addition to existing literature on Akbar?" the answer is "no".' - Mohammad Amin, Outlook.

Can it be that Akbar was to India in the 16th Century what Habib is to medieval Indian history today?' -Sanjay Subramanyam, India Today

About the Author:

Irfan Habib, formerly Professor of History at Aligarh, is the author of The Agrarian System of Mughal India and An Atlas of the Mughal Empire.
