      Summary Of The Book

      Medieval India: From Sultanat To The Mughals Delhi Sultanat (1206-1526) Part One looks at the historical period between the Mughal rule in India and its predecessors, the Sultanate. The author acts as a chronicler, detailing and describing all the changes that occurred in this period. Medieval India: From Sultanat To The Mughals Delhi Sultanat (1206-1526) Part One looks at India in this period and all her resultant changes and transformations in some specific fields. These fields include the Indian economy, politics, culture and other societal transformations as well. This book strives to bring together popular folklore down the ages and intensive research. There are some stories that are controversial along with some famous decisions as well. 320 years of indian history is detailed and described by the author after extensive research.

      Medieval India: From Sultanat To The Mughals Delhi Sultanat (1206-1526) Part One can be called a broad survey of all these diverse changes between 1206 and 1526. This period has spawned a lot of public mass perception along with various historical research. Satish Chandra has tried to bridge the gap between these differing perceptions in this book. This period is often described as a very controversial period in Indian history. Satish Chandra has presented a detailed picture of these so called dark ages in Indian history in Medieval India: From Sultanat To The Mughals Delhi Sultanat (1206-1526) Part One. This was generally regarded as an age where rapine, and war prevailed, leaving little room for positive transformations and developments of any sort.

      Wonderful

      You will need a dictionary to understand everything. Go for some other book if you want a leisure reading or want to go through the 'given period' in one go. Else it's superb.
