About the Authors
  • This examination of the interaction between state and society greatly contributes to our understanding of medieval India. The Mughal empire, one of the most powerful states in pre-British India with an impressive administrative structure and an aristocratic high culture, has long held a fascination for historians. Exploring the Mughal State on the basis of extant local documents not previously treated by historians, this book demonstrates that the state was deeply entangled with social forces.

    • Explores the interaction between state and society in the Mughal Empire
    • Provides new evidence from previously-unexamined local documents
    • Takes an interdisciplinary approach which will appeal to the student of history and to the student of politics
