Description

This wonderful book is about the unity of texture in the development of the Indian society. The book deals with the Mughal and British periods together in one volume. The Mughal rule is viewed as the preparation and precondition for the modern age ushered in by the British, and the British Raj as the harbinger of Western civilization. A truly enlightening book.
