  • 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.

    A good book but not the best

    Readable, concise, covers most of the relevant events of the periods it talks about. Fulfills the requirement of any one preparing for any exam which requires the knowledge of this period about India.

    But, as a historian Satish Chandra has disappointed me on many occasion where he tries to put his own way of looking at the facts. The way he tries to explain the reason behind Prithviraj Chauhaan's defeat at second battle of Terrain, and then goes on to show the Muslim invaders in good light t...
