    Description
    "Aurangzeb Alamgir (1658), The sixth Mughal emperor, is widely reviled in India today. Hindu hater, murderer and religious zealot are just a handful of the modern caricatures of this maligned ruler. While many continue to accept the story-line peddled by colonial-era thinkers that Aurangzeb, a Muslim, was a Hindu - loathing bigot here is an untold side to him as a man who strove to be a just, worthy Indian king. In this bold and captivating biography, Audrey Truschke enters the public debate with a fresh look at the controversial Mughal emperor.",
