John F. Richards Õ 1 READ & DOWNLOAD

Tionship between the emperors and Islam He also analyzes institutions particular to the Mughal empire such as the jagir system and explores Mughal India's links with the early modern world. Richard s comprehensive work on the Mughal s is an important work for the history of the period but comes up lacking in style and presentation I appreciate the perspective of a well trained and objective historian in a field muddled with intense nationalist belief and vested interests but this book is just so damn boring

    Informative but very dry Richards suffers from the same problem that a lot of scholarly writers have in that his writing is just not pleasant to read While reading this book I almost skimmed right over my favorite story of Akbar the Great in which he has a dissident thrown down the stairs repeatedly until dead because it was written so dryly
