3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting reading 21 May 2008
By Sujith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book deals with life during the Mughal empire in India. It is not a history of the Mughals and their rule, but focuses more on court culture, etiquette and rituals. The book has four chapters. The first chapter discusses how the Mughals legitimized their rule, their attitudes on religion and politics. I found this chapter written in a very meandering sort of fashion. The second chapter deals with court etiquette. The third chapter discusses the family life of the Mughals. This is the most interesting part of the book. This book is not a chronological history, but many incidents are narrated at the appropriate time to highlight the behavior of the Mughals and their family members, etc. It is meant for those who would like a deeper understanding of the life of the Mughal rulers. This book would have been much more complete if it dealt with the life of the ordinary people as well.
