This work, in two volumes bound in one, is an outstanding narrative of the period following the death of Aurangzeb in 1707, and covers the period upto 1739 when Nadir Shah invaded India and occupied Delhi after defeating Muhammad Shah.

This work is based entirely on the original Persian and other contemporary sources besides the mass of information gathered from the East India records of the Dutch, French and Portuguese Government as well as the Christian Missions of the East.

It is a permanent source-book for the history of the later Mughal rulers. It embodies the varied information provided by the various contemporary sources which the author verified and supplemented by carefully sifting the information from the accounts of individual travelers and writers.
