India is a land of enormous diversity. Cross-cultural influences are everywhere in evidence, in the food people eat, the clothes they wear, and in the places they worship. This was especially the case in the India that existed from 1200 to 1750, before the European intervention. The book takes the reader on a journey across the political, economic, religious and cultural landscapes of medieval India, from the Ghurid conquests and the Dehli Sultanate to the great court of the Mughals. This was a time of conquest and consolidation, when Muslims and Hindus came together to create a unique culture which still resonates in today's India. As the first survey of its kind in over a decade, the book is a tour de force. It is beautifully illustrated and fluently composed, with a cast of characters which will educate students and general readers alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Asher and Talbot provide an excellent introduction, very necessary in this type of academic work ... the excellent maps ... assist our understanding of the subject matter ... I am convinced that as a model for writing an academic book India before Europe succeeds ... The photographs mostly by Frederick M. Asher and Catherine B Asher are likewise first class ...' The Journal of the Open University History Society
'... this book will remain a standard in the field for many decades and belongs on the bookshelf of every scholar of South Asia.' Religious Studies Review
