In a fascinating and innovative study, Ruby Lal explores domestic life and the place of women in the Mughal court of the sixteenth century. Challenging traditional, orientalist interpretations of the haram that have portrayed a domestic world of seclusion and sexual exploitation, the author reveals a complex society where noble men and women negotiated their everyday life and public-political affairs in the 'inner' chambers as well as the 'outer' courts. Using Ottoman and Safavid histories as a counterpoint, she demonstrates the richness, ambiguity and particularity of the Mughal haram, which was pivotal in the transition to institutionalisation and imperial excellence. Contents 1. Introduction 2. A genealogy of the Mughal haram 3. The question of the archive: the challenge of a princess's memoir 4. The making of Mughal court society 5. Where was the haram in a peripatetic world? 6. Settled, sacred, and all-powerful: the new regime under Akbar 7. Settled, sacred, and 'incarcerated': the imperial haram 8. Conclusion. Printed Pages: 26 with 6 b/w illustrations.
