Medieval India: From Sultanat to the Mughals

Satish Chandra (Author)

The present work is a broad survey of political, social, economic and cultural developments in India between 1206 and 1526. These three and a quarter centuries, called the Delhi Sultanat, is sometimes seen as a dark age of war and rapine in which little developments took place. Disagreeing with this view, the author brings out the distinct lines of development between the political, social, economic and cultural spheres, and their inter relationships. While political history has not been neglected, due emphasis has been given to the economics, social and cultural aspects. In the present work which is both readable and scholarly, the author has tried to bridge the gap between current historical research and popular perception of a controversial phase in Indian history.
