Explorations In Connected History (Mughals and Franks)
Explorations In Connected History (Mughals and Franks)
Description
About the Book

Pre-colonial India - and how it was perceived in Europe at the time - has been variously written about. Of late, historians have felt the need to reexamine the sources through which this history was reconstructed. In this collection Subrahmanyam questions the lines of political and cultural division that traditional history writing has accepted. He demonstrates that the interface and balance of power between the Mughals and the Europeans are an integral part of a wider system of international political alliances.

Mughals and Franks reflects on two and a half centuries of Mughal-European relations, beginning with the early years of the Mughals in India, and ending with the eighteenth century. It is based on extensive research into the Portuguese, Dutch, English, French, and Persian Materials of the period, both archives and published texts. The work introduces the idea of contained conflict, which is used as a paradigm to study political and commercial relations in the period.

There essays are an instance of the author's command over the resources of Indian history, and a lively familiarity with archives across geographical boundaries. Like its companion from the Tagus to the Ganges, this work makes a major contribution to the understanding of Mughal-European relations in the early modern period. It will be of immense interest to historians of medieval India and to scholars and students engaged in debates about history writing in general.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
