Richard Eaton's brilliant book stands as an important monument to this almost forgotten world' - William Dalrymple, The SpectatorA sweeping, magisterial new history of India from the middle ages to the arrival of the BritishThe Indian subcontinent might seem a self-contained world. Protected byvast mountains and seas, it has created its own religions, philosophiesand social systems. And yet this ancient land experienced prolongedandintense interaction with the peoples and cultures of East andSoutheastAsia, Europe, Africa and, especially, Central Asia and theIranianplateau between the eleventh and eighteenth centuries.Richard M. Eaton's wonderful new book tells this extraordinary storywith relish and originality.

Introduced to India in the eleventh century by dynastiesbased ineastern Afghanistan, this culture would become thoroughlyindigenized bythe time of the great Mughals in the sixteenth,seventeenth, andeighteenth centuries. This long-term process ofcultural interaction andassimilation is reflected in India's language,literature, cuisine,attire, religion, styles of rulership andwarfare, science, art, music,architecture, and more.Thebook brilliantly elaborates thecomplex encounter between India'sSanskrit culture - which continued toflourish and grow throughout thisperiod - and Persian culture, whichhelped shape the Delhi Sultanate,the Mughal Empire and a host ofregional states, and made India what itis today.
