    Abstract

    This comprehensive collection of essays by one of the most well-known historians of Mughal history is based on strong empirical grounding and primary sources. Integrating statistical analysis with socio-economic history, Shireen Moosvi contributes to our understanding of a range of subjects relating to the medieval Indian economy. The book discusses five themes that deal with the economic experience of people as well as the states. The collection has a wide range which includes analysis of varied regions such as Deccan, Surat, Kashmir apart from the Mughal north India. It discusses economy and administration in the lifetimes of three Mughal EmperorsAkbar, Shahjahan, and Aurangzeb. The volume discusses crucial aspects of Mughal domains which hardly many historians have analysed systematically. These essays deal with population and settlement patterns, political problems and their economic linkages, work patterns and their relation with gender, provincial and imperial administration and finance.
