Section two on agrarian and commercial trends focuses on conformity and conflicts between the tribes and the Mughal agrarian system, foreign merchants in western Indian sea ports, conflicts and cooperation among European traders, and a comparative discussion of forest people and policies of the Mughals and the East India Company. The third section on religion, social movements and disputes discusses Naqshbandi mysticism under Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi, the rasa mandala of the Gaudiya Vaishnava emanating from the mystical movement led by Chaitanya, Aurangzeb’s religious policy and Mosque-Temple disputes in a late eighteenth century chronicle. It further attempts a comprehensive reading of a series of political and ideological currents underpinning empire-building strategies over a major part of Eurasia in the sixteenth century.Printed Pages: 590. 101880

2 Meena Bhargava (Ed.)
Exploring Medieval India: Sixteenth to Eighteenth Centuries (Vol. II: Culture, Gender and Regional Patterns)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125041044 / 9788125041047; Softcover; New; 
Probing different aspects of India’s society and culture, this volume comprises four thematic clusters—diverse forms of culture; gender and medievalism; patterns of transition; and region, regional formations and the Mughal Empire. A comprehensive introduction places the essays in perspective showing how the Mughal Empire remained composite, intricate and loosely-structured, perhaps hegemonic but over a disparate, divergent, energetic and lively economy and society. Focusing on culture in its diverse forms, section one brings to the fore the expansion of Persian as the language of power, the development of insha as a literary trend, the nuances of Mughal architecture, the importance of Mughal paintings and how they became a medium of recording the history of the Mughal empire, the various genres of music and their explicit manifestations of the gender politics. Concepts of love, the politics of marriage and reproduction, and the role of women within and outside the confines of the Mughal household, form the second section. The third section discusses the emergence of provincial and regional political configurations, the shifts in the Indian economy and traces the growing European influence in the rise of the East India Company. The last section contributes to the understanding of how and to what extent different geographical conditions determined the logistics of the outer frontiers of the Mughal empire, the importance of centralisation of authority around local rulers, the reasons behind Akbar’s territorial expansion, and the continued presence of pluralistic socio-cultural centres characterised by Hindu-Muslim symbiosis.Printed Pages: 518. 101950
