In this fascinating account of one of the least known parts of South Asia, Richard Eaton recounts the history of the Deccan plateau in southern India from the fourteenth century to the rise of European colonialism. He does so, vividly, through the lives of eight Indians who lived at different times during this period, and who each represented something particular about the Deccan. Their stories are woven together into a rich narrative tapestry, which illuminates the most important social processes of the Deccan across four centuries and provides a much-needed book by the most highly regarded scholar in the field.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"This beautifully illustrated, slim volume provides an excellent introduction to a new body of highly original work for all students of South Asia, general readers as much as cognoscenti. It updates previous general accounts of Deccan or parts thereof."
