Product description

Review

With stern adoration and a steady hand, Ruby Lal has boldly recut the crown jewel that was Nur Jahan (Allan Sealy)

An outstanding book, not only incredibly important but also a fabulous piece of writing (Amanda Foreman, author of The World Made by Women)

What an extraordinary and detailed account of a remarkable woman-amazing! (Deepa Mehta, filmmaker and screenwriter)

The panoramic sweep of this extraordinary feminist history is matched by the exquisite storytelling (Namita Gokhale)

In filling in the details of Nur Jahan's life, Ruby Lal has not only written a revisionist feminist biography, but she has also provided a vivid picture of the Mughal court, with its luxuries, beauties, intrigues and horrors (The Economist)

Lal's intriguing biography, with its chronology of her relatively swift rise to power and even swifter descent, restores Nur Jahan to her full splendour (BBC)

A page-turning, eye-opening biography that shatters our impressions of India as established by the British Raj (Kirkus Reviews)

Ruby Lal's marvelous account of Empress Nur Jahan's life is as intriguing, inspiring, and relevant to us today in 21st century America, as it was to her times in 17th century India (Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran)

A new light on a neglected ruler: On Empress: The Astonishing Reign of Nur Jahan (Los Angeles Review of Books)

The rise and reign of a self-made Mughal queen (Guardian)

About the Author

Ruby Lal is an acclaimed historian of Mughal India. Her previous books are Domesticity and Power in the Early Mughal World and Coming of Age in Nineteenth Century India: The Girl-Child and the Art of Playfulness. She teaches at Emory University and divides her time between Atlanta and Delhi.
