Between the mid-sixteenth and early nineteenth century, the Mughal Empire was an Indo-Islamic dynasty that ruled as far as Bengal in the east and Kabul in the west, as high as Kashmir in the north and the Kaveri basin in the south. The Mughals constructed a sophisticated, complex system of government that facilitated an era of profound artistic and architectural achievement. They promoted the place of Persian culture in Indian society and set the groundwork for South Asia's future development. In this volume, two leading historians of early modern South Asia present nine major joint essays on the Mughal Empire, framed by an essential introductory reflection. Making creative use of materials written in Persian, Indian vernacular languages, and a variety of European languages, their chapters accomplish the most significant innovations in Mughal historiography in decades, intertwining political, cultural, and commercial themes while exploring diplomacy, state-formation, history-writing, religious debate, and political thought. Muzaffar Alam and Sanjay Subrahmanyam center on confrontations between different source materials that they then reconcile, enabling readers to participate in both the debate and resolution of competing claims. Their introduction discusses the comparative and historiographical approach of their work and its place within the literature on Mughal rule. Interdisciplinary and cutting-edge, this volume richly expands research on the Mughal state, early modern South Asia, and the comparative history of the Mughal, Ottoman, Safavid, and other early modern empires.

One of the most powerful of all the world's great dynasties, the Mughals ruled India for over three hundred years. Beginning in 1526, the first six emperors--Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan, Aurangzeb--invaded, lost, regained, and greatly expanded an empire that at its peak covered most of preindependent India. But the later rulers were seriously overstretched, increasingly lacking authority, resources, or ability, and by the time the last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar, was deposed in 1857, the once-great dynasty held power over just the Red Fort in Delhi. In The Lives of the Mughal Emperors, John Reeve tells the individual stories of the Mughal emperors and other key officials through the art that was produced at the time. The Mughals were great patrons of the arts, and Reeve reveals them to be not only an enormously powerful dynasty but also one beset by problems of opium and alcohol addiction, brutal familial infighting, and territorial pressures from other political powers. A beautifully illustrated introduction to the Mughal period, this volume will appeal to anyone interested in how the Mughals built and then lost a great empire.

The Women of Mughal Harem: Secrets revealed gives an exhilarating account of the Mughal domestic life. Harem of the Mughals has been a subject of much speculation and debate amongst the scholars and the general public alike. While foreign travelers have painted it as a pleasure house, meant for the sexual gratification of one man-the Emperor. Native chroniclers have called it an abode of quintessential bliss. So what was the reality of harem? Just like any normal household, the life of harem inmates bears testament to joy and pain, hope and despair, love and loss- all the bittersweet emotions that add spice and flavor to human life. In fact the Mughal Harem was a far more diverse and vibrant institution than what it is believed to be- it was a unique all women’s world. This book brings to life the trials and tribulations of generations of Mughal women who inhabited a world very different from ours. Today when a worldwide debate is going on to trace women’s place in history, this work has become all the more relevant. A peek into the lives of Mughal women would give us a better understanding of an obscured and almost mythical world-the harem of the mighty Mughals.

A definitive, comprehensive and engrossing chronicle of one of the greatest dynasties of the world – the Mughal – from its founder Babur to Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last of the clan The magnificent Mughal legacy – the world-famous Taj Mahal being the most prominent among countless other examples – is an inexhaustible source of inspiration to historians, writers, moviemakers, artists and ordinary mortals alike. Mughal history abounds with all the ingredients of classical drama: ambition and frustration, hope and despair, grandeur and decline, love and hate, and loyalty and betrayal. In other words: it is great to read and offers ample food for thought on the human condition. Much more importantly, Mughal history deserves to be widely read and reflected upon, because of its lasting cultural and socio-political relevance to today’s world in general and the Indian subcontinent in particular. The Mughals have left us with a legacy that cannot be erased. With regard to the eventful reigns of Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan, Aurangzeb and their successors, crucial questions arise: Where did they succeed? Where did they fail? And more importantly, what should we learn from their triumphs and failures? The author believes that history books should be accurate, informative and entertaining. In The Great Mughals and Their India, he has kept these objectives in mind in an attempt to narrate Mughal history from their perspective. At the same time, he does not shy away from dealing with controversial issues. Here is a fascinating and riveting saga that brings alive a spectacular bygone era – authentically and convincingly.

Having monopolized Central Asian politics and culture for over a century, the Timurid ruling elite was forced from its ancestral homeland in Transoxiana at the turn of the sixteenth century by an invading Uzbek tribal confederation. The Timurids traveled south, establishing themselves as the new rulers of a region roughly comprising modern Afghanistan, Pakistan, and northern India, and founding what would become the Mughal Empire (1526-1857). The last survivors of the House of Timur, the Mughals drew invaluable political capital from their lineage, which was recognized for its charismatic genealogy and court culture, the features of which are examined here. By identifying Mughal loyalty to Turco-Mongol institutions and traditions, Lisa Balabanlilar here positions the Mughal dynasty at the center of the early modern Islamic world as the direct successors of a powerful political and religious tradition.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Art - Architecture / History of Construction, grade: 1,3, Manipal University (Manipal Institute of Communication), course: Cultural History of India, language: English, abstract: Although India can refer to a proud and very multifaceted history of architecture - with the likes of early and later Hindu and Buddhist temples, Muslim mosques and palaces, and to some degree even the achievements of colonial architecture - the creations of the Mughals probably outshine them all - not least because one of their finest pieces of art ranks amongst the seven world-wonders. The following essay will give an overview over Mughal architecture and hopefully help understanding the ideas behind it. In the very beginning, it explains the origins of the Mughal dynasty. It focuses in further detail on the four emperors Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb, for they are considered the most important forces in terms of changing the landscape of Mughal India. The resume will provide some overall thoughts and the results of the analysis of the emperors' different styles in (urban) planning, building, decorating and patronizing.

The Formation of the Mughal Empire, establishes links missing in the literature that has hitherto been available. It connects several things - the process of the Mughal Empire's expansion, Akbar's political and administrative initiatives, and the rituals of the Mughal court - to explain the fundamental characteristics of the Mughal polity. Dr Streusand also places Mughal institutions and practices within their political and cultural contexts to explain how the Mughal ruling class coalesced from heterogeneous groups which retained their own identities. He provides explanations for the persistence of zamindars in the Mughal empire, the peculiar nature of the status of the mansabdar, and the apparent Mughal failure to enforce many of the regulations which applied to mansabdars. By emphasizing the distinction between the image of the Mughal political structure in court rituals at the centre, and the reality of the situation in the provinces, Dr Streusand explains how centralized the Mughal empire was - or was not. The author's original analysis of Mughal military superiority and his unique decoding of Mughal court rituals make this book of interest to scholars of the medieval world generally. It is likely to prove an indispensable book for students of medieval India.
