For the purpose of the Historical Dictionary of Medieval India, the period from 1000 A.D. to 1526 A.D. will be considered India's medieval times. The turbulent history of this period is told through the book's chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on key people, historical geography, arts, institutions, events, and other important terms.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a short reference work with slightly under five hundred entries, pertaining mainly to individuals but also to some cities, literary texts, dynasties, ethnic labels, official titles, and the like. In addition to the alphabetically arranged entries, it contains a nine-page chronology, an extensive but dated bibliography, and a surprisingly good introduction to the "medieval period of Indian history," as defined as the years from 1000 to 1526. * Journal of the American Oriental Society *
The book has an excellent essay and an extensive bibliography.... a well-prepared dictionary and a good introduction to medieval India.... a good dictionary and an excellent addition to the historical literature and is highly recommended for all academic and public library collections. * American Reference Books Annual, March 2009 *
