The present work seeks to examine the interplay of the political, economic and social forces which contributed to the shaping of the society of medieval India. Tracing the rise of Muslim monarchy the author places the Sultan in proper perspective of Islamic ideals and Indian environment. The resultant sultanate was based purely on force; tyranny was essential for its working; the state treasury was the personal property of the Sultan; extravagant and wasteful expenditure was the rule. Under the economic conditions, the author lays stress on the importance of the village community in the economic organization of production, the chief feature being production mainly for the purpose of local consumption. The social condition was governed by joint family system in which the family life was regulated on the basis of customs and manners. The beliefs of the people were an outcome of the mental make-up which determined heir attitude to life, fairs and festivals and recreations both out-door and in-door added jest to life and brought about observations in social life. All these and many other aspects have been analysed and presented in a lucid style which make the book highly informative. Printed Pages: 324.
