What is unusual is the focused attention on early modern non-European empires which contained many apparently 'modern' institutions and processes, examined within the unifying theme of 'modernity'.With the realization that major empires of Eurasia such as the Mughal Indian, Ottoman and Qing Chinese empires shared many features with European imperial formations, including British India, this book fills the vital need of giving more attention to the non-European world
