Akbar and His India
Akbar and His India
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.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Mª Rosário Costa, Portugal
I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
The statue has arrived today. It so beautiful, lots of details. I am very happy and will order from you shop again.
Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
