Beschreibung

India is a land of enormous diversity. Cross-cultural influences are everywhere in evidence, in the food people eat, the clothes they wear, and in the places they worship. This was especially true of the India that existed from 1200 to 1750, before the European intervention. This beautifully illustrated book takes the reader on a journey across the political, religious and cultural landscapes of medieval India. It is fluently composed, with a cast of characters which will educate students and general readers alike.

Pressestimmen

'Asher and Talbot provide an excellent introduction, very necessary in this type of academic work ... the excellent maps ... assist our understanding of the subject matter ... I am convinced that as a model for writing an academic book India before Europe succeeds ... The photographs mostly by Frederick M. Asher and Catherine B Asher are likewise first class ...' The Journal of the Open University History Society '... this book will remain a standard in the field for many decades and belongs on the bookshelf of every scholar of South Asia.' Religious Studies Review
