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 But historical accounts of their life and career are not only few, but also outdated; most of them having been written fifty years before, Erskine's Baber and Humayun, for instance, was published as far back as 1854; 131 years ago to be exact.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.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
