Sinopsis: Book by Fisher Michael
Críticas: "'The Mughal empire was one of the great success stories of imperial history - comparable to the Roman, Ottoman, British and Spanish world empires. It is therefore useful to have a collection of ten narratives that explored that Empire before people were thinking of its decline, much less its fall. Each writer in this anthology was, in his own way and with his own non-Asian predilections, a child of the Renaissance weltanschauung, making man a subject of serious study, not, as in the pre-Mughal era, of legend or of myth.'- Roderick Cavaliero, former director of the British Council in India, and author of Strangers in the Land: The Rise and Decline of the British Indian Empire 'A fascinating collection of first hand accounts of Mughal India by European travelers. Michael Fisher has made available for the first time an excellent selection of documents that will be of interest to students as well as the general reader who wishes to know more about encounters between Europeans and the wider world. Well chosen, and masterfully edited and introduced, they yield a unique perspective on the early modern era.'- Professor Douglas Peers, Associate Dean (Research and Development), Faculty of Social Sciences and Associate Professor, Department of History, University of Calgary 'Visions of Mughal India fills an important gap by providing selected extracts from the writings of early modern European travellers in the Indian subcontinent, garnered from a wide variety of sources, each skilfully contextualised and provided with an illuminating and scholarly introduction by Professor Fisher. An incredibly useful compendium.'- Dr. Crispin Bates is Senior Lecturer in Modern South Asian History in the School of History and Classics at the University of Edinburgh"

Descripción I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2007. Hardback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Mughal Empire, which conquered and ruled virtually all of today s India, Pakistan and Bangladesh over several centuries, created one of the richest and most colourful of all historical periods. Peoples of different cultures - including Muslims, Christians, Hindus and others, originating from Iran, Central Asia, Europe and South Asia itself worked, traded and travelled throughout the Empire, contributing to its dynamism and power. A few of the Europeans who began crisscrossing the roads of Mughal India wrote, in the forms of diaries, letters and travelogues, about the people and lands they encountered.This illuminating and carefully chosen anthology contains a collection of among the best writings by European travellers from England, Italy, Russia, France, Spain and Portugal as they journeyed the length and breadth of the Empire over a 200-year period (1471-1671). Their experiences and observations form fascinating and informative visions of travel and life in India during this period and provide invaluable contributions to our understanding of life there at the time.
