This volume deals with the history of India from the death of Aurangzeb to the Third Maratha War. It was an eventful period that witnessed the end of Muslim rule, the riseand fall of the Maratha Empire and the foundation of the British Empire in India. But the political history was not the only important feature of this period. It paved the way for India's transition from the Medieval to the Modern Age in the nineteenth century. It was during this period that India first came into close contact with the Western World.
