Title Review

One of the foremost historians of India, Satish Chandra presents essays the study the complex inter-linkages between state, society and culture in the context of medieval and modern India. He gives a comprehensive overview of traditions, histories and cultures in the process. He evaluates historically ideas relating to secularism and composite culture, historiography and the use of sources. A section is devoted to the Mughals: the perception of Emperor Akbar in modern Indian historiography, the jagirdari system and the place of historical figures like Jodha Bai, Rana Pratap and Shivaji. For the purpose, the author refers to various sources including some Rajasthani sources on Jodha Bai.
