By: Eaton, Richard Maxwell.
Publisher: London : Allen Lane, 2019Description: xiv, 488 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations, maps ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9780713995824.Subject(s): India -- History -- 1000-1526 | India -- History -- 1526-1765DDC classification: 954.02 Summary: "Richard M. Eaton's wonderful new book tells this extraordinary story with relish and originality. His major theme is the rise of 'Persianate' culture - a many-faceted transregional world informed by a canon of texts that circulated through ever-widening networks across much of Asia. Introduced to India in the eleventh century by dynasties based in eastern Afghanistan, this culture would become thoroughly indigenized by the time of the great Mughals in the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. This long-term process of cultural interaction and assimilation is reflected in India's language, literature, cuisine, attire, religion, styles of rulership and warfare, science, art, music, architecture, and more." - Book cover
