  • Description

    History Of Medieval India is the second book in a series written to provide a comprehensive overview of the history of the Indian subcontinent.

    Summary Of The Book

    History Of Medieval India covers the historical landscape of the Indian subcontinent over a period of a thousand years, between the eighth and eighteenth century AD. The book starts off with a bird’s eye view of the state of the world during the medieval period, before dwelling on the rise and fall of empires in the Indian subcontinent.

    Writing about the history of India is a daunting task, but the author has attempted to carry out the task with the eye of an inquirer and the pen of a scholar. The book has been written keeping in mind readers who may have some basic knowledge of the political situation in medieval India and would like to pursue the knowledge further. The book elucidates the beginnings, growths and deaths of many a dynasty, including but not limited to the Cholas, Rajputs, Vijayanagara kings, Bahmanids and the Marathas.

    History Of Medieval India’s primary merit lies in the fact that it departs from the well worn path of writing about dynastic history alone and looks at the social, political, cultural and economic developments that the period gave rise to. Some of these developments still have significance in contemporary relevance, such as the caste system which seems to have been born around this period.

    The author has done a tremendous job in condensing such a large amount of subject matter in such a small space.

    Poor Print Quality.

    I have a habit of underlining while reading a book.(with pencil, of course)
    When I tried to rub it with an eraser....guess what...the text FADED.

    May be it was printed in Medieval times.
    flipKart as usual was awesome.

    Good replacement for old NCERT

    For people who are preparing for UPSC or other examination and are flirting with the idea of taking History as an optional, should seriously read this book book before jumping into more advanced books on Medieval India.
    The language is lucid and the topics are touched quite satisfactorily. How from exam point of view, this book should only serve as a primer, and other books (Vol 1 and Vol 2) need to read, to augment understanding as well as the quality of answers.

    The best concise volume on Medieval India

    There are voluminous books on this subject, but this one covers everything, in all details, in a lucid prose, though doesn't seem to be too voluminous. The best text so far for anyone interested in the Medieval India, anyone who is a beginner.

    SAME AS 11TH NCERT OLD VERSION MEDIEVAL INDIA

    This is same reprint of 11th NCERT old version book which cost only Rs.65/- but the actual thing is that this version has been stoped and not available in the market, yet the price is very huge (5 times the selling price of old NCERT book). Yet the book is very nice and very helpful. Every trying to buy this one can search for that NCERT book and if cannot find it then you can go for this book.

    Awesome!

    I started reading about Medieval Indian History from the 2 separate volumes written on Medieval History by the same author.I managed to finish the first but i found the sheer size of the second book dauting!So then i bought this book to read a shorter version of the Mughal rule.

    It's a pleasure to read it.The arguments and reasoning are simply brilliant.

    But If one is into academics or want a very deep understanding of Medieval History then you should go for the longer version or the double...

    One of the best reads on the topic!

    History of Medieval India by Satish Chandra is an excellent book to read for those who're interested in knowing more about the happenings in the country during the medieval times. It is written in a systematic manner and provides an almost neutral view on the developments that happened in those times. It can read by general public who is interested in reading about our history and is one of the must buys for students preparing for examinations such as Civil Services. It not only provides all ...
