As a companion volume to Basham's classic work, this book surveys the history and culture of the Indian sub-continent from the coming of the Muslims to the British conquest 1200-1700. The sources used for this volume are varied and enormous, and broadly divided into four categories: archaeological, artistic, numismatic, and literary. Muslim rule in India, subject of this volume, did not destroy the ancient culture of India, as did the onslaughts of the Muslims in Persia, argues the author.
