The emergence of regional forces, following the disintegration of the Mughal empire, greatly aided the promotion of regional centres which provided the grounds for a religious and cultural efflorescence. Shifting the focus away from the often-examined political and economic aspects of the eighteenth century transition, the book studies a wid... View more info
