Royalty in Medieval India
Royalty in Medieval India
Description

About the Book:

While considerable literature has appeared on the political history and institutions of the Delhi Sultanate, a study of royalty as such has largely remained a desideratum. The present work fills this gap in our historical studies. It surveys the historical landscape of medieval India from the foot of the royal throne. Besides a glimpse into the public and private life of the sultans, it throws lot of light on their ethnic background, their legal and actual position, their patronage of art and culture, their religious learnings, contact with outside world and relations with the Hindus. In short it covers the entire spectrum of life of the Delhi sultans from the haram to the battlefield. The study is based on an extensive search and discovery of new source material.

About the Author:

K.A. Nizami was for many years the Chairman of the Department of History and Director of the Centre of Advanced Study in History at Aligarh Muslim University. He also served as India's ambassador to Syria. His important publications are: Some Aspects of Religion and Politics in India during the Thirteenth Century (Delhi, 1974); and On History and Historians of Medieval India (New Delhi, 19830.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
