The Mohammedan period of Indian history is an invasion of the Turks into the immemorial systems, rule and customs of Ancient India. The period ends when one of the last of these Muslim rulers, oppressed by of Hindu ascendency, placed himself under English protection and Modern India came into being. Ancient India was too deeply rooted in its traditions to wither even under the storm of the Muslim conquest. The old Indian life survived the shock of the new ideas and it outlived the Muslim period. But little altered in the modern Age of English domination. The history of the Mohammedan period is, therefore, necessarily more a chronicle of kings and courts and conquests than of organic or national growth. As a source it is invaluable, and the present book owes an immense debt of it; indeed, no modern historian of India can afford to neglect it. Printed Pages: 459 with 56 plates & 1 map.
