'Through this republication of 24 of Professor Satish Chandra's influential articles, supplemented by a new autobiographical Introduction, he recapitulates his vision of Indian history. During his long and distinguished career, he has used his masterful knowledge of relevant primary sources to build persuasive analyses of many aspects of social, political, religious and economic history, covering the period from the tenth to the eighteenth centuries. His work has influenced generations of scholar and students at all levels.'

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
