Shahjahanabad / Old Delhi: Tradition and Colonial Change

Thomas Krafft (Editor) Eckart Ehlers (Editor)
Synopsis Shahagabavad / Old Delhi brings together contributions from a group of International scholars from different disciplines focusing on the historical and social development of Shah Jahan’s ingenious Imperial City. A common thread shared by all contributions is the use all authors make of an outstanding historical document – a manuscript map – held in the India Office & Records in London. A handsomely redrawn version of this unique map is included in the volume. It offers a wealth off topographical, social and institutional data for understanding structure and significance of Delhi’s Walled City as the Indo-Muslim capital at the peak of Moghul rule in India. The book also covers the fate of this magnificent city under British rule and during the first three decades of independency.
