This edition, abridged by the author himself from the original five-volume History of Aurangzib contains nearly one-half of the material of the larger work, and has not led to any loss of the essentials.

Sir Jadunath's work on Aurangzib is still unrivalled. Despite reduction in length from the original, the narratives of the campaigns and the chapters dealing with Aurangzib's career before his accession to the throne have been skillfully compressed while character-sketches, reflections, the survey of progress, decline or fall, and generalizations I e all that brings to life the bare bones of historical information, have been given here almost as fully as in the larger work.
