Mughal India and Central Asia

Richard Foltz

Mughal India and Central Asia explores the Central Asian element in the formation of the civilization of Mughal India, focusing on the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The culture of the Mughal Empire is seen to be a composite of indigenous and foreign elements, many of which originated, like the Mughal rulers themselves, in Central Asia. The author argues that the Muslim societies of the pre-colonial period in Asia should be studied in terms of their own self-perceptions, and not simply as backward projections of modern day realities and notions.
