It confirms that racial or religious factors played but a marginal role in the political life of this group. "This work highlights the role of the nobility as mansabdars, jagirdars and as administrators at various levels. It underlines a link between the posts and the mansab and brings out some of the considerations on the basis of which subedaris, faujdaris and qiladaris were assigned. A special feature of the book is the presentation of the family groups of leading nobles whose share in wealth and power is exhibited through statistical methods. Printed Pages: 300
