The volume will cover Raja Shivaji's life and times along with the strategic and administrative intelligence and excellence. It will also highlight his statesmanship and able generalship in crisp 1100 odd pages. Highlight of the volume will be Mehendale's hitherto unpublished coverage of these aspects from 1660 to 1680 for which elite Marathi and Indian readers have been waiting for a long. Such an authentic, researched biography in English has not been available for a long time after Sir Jadunath Sarkar's volume in 1919 (6 reprints) and Balkrishna's volume in 1932. The volume will have essential maps drawn with the most state-of-the-art methods, footnotes and bibliography. In this work he is ably assisted and subordinated (for editing, translation and content restructuring) by a professional, experienced team of Pune.

I was gifted this book, this is a treasure to have. You would experience The Great Shivaji's life through all paths in this books. The book not only tells you the story of his conquer and bravery but also exemplifies how he grows up to a warrior of that high stature. The book has nice maps which helps you a great deal reading, IT MIGHT BE COSTLY BUT WORTH ENTERING AN LIFE OF A DIVINE INDIVIDUAL- Maharaj!!
