5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Introductory Text on the Mughals, 11 Nov. 2012
This review is from: The Lives of the Mughal Emperors (Paperback)
This is an excellent introductory overview of the history of the Mughal Empire between 1526 and 1858. This short book is beautifully illustrated with full page colour reproductions on every second page of paintings and scrolls from the British Library collection, including artefacts from the East India Company collection. The author, John Reeve, provides a brief history of the most important Mughal emperors and also provides separate pieces on their cultural and historical achievements. Many readers will be familiar with the Emperor Shah Jahan (1627-58) and the building of the Taj Mahal, but other emperors made important contributions to painting, architecture, poetry and the building of great gardens. The arrival of the British in India is also briefly covered. A list of the key Mughal emperors is provided together with a map showing the extent of the empire and its main provinces.
This beautiful, well written, book represents excellent value for money and is a `must' for those who have an interest in this aspect of history but who do not want to invest their time in a major tome.
