About the Book:

Mughal history is a field that has fascinated scholars and students of history for at least four hundred years. In particular, the study of the agrarian set up has attracted many a scholar.

This is not just another book on Mughal history providing anecdotes or description about the land revenue/agrarian system of the Mughal age. Rather, it is a critical analysis of the topics contained in this volume based on an in-depth study of original Persian and Urdu documents and manuscripts of the Mughal period. A wealth of information and analysis on the topics is being presented in The Collected Works of Professor B. R. Grover, of which this is the first volume.

His writings are all based on original sources and documents relating to the agrarian structure of the medieval Indian society in coordination with the chronicles and various other categories of contemporary sources.

In analysing the land rights of various classes in the Mughal age, the concept of village community, land revenue administration, the nature of zamindari and evolution of Taaluqdari system during the Mughal age, among other things, Prof. Grover examined the original contemporary source material in Persian, Urdu, Ottoman Turkish, regional languages and English.

The articles in this volume were (earlier) presented by Prof. Grover at various national and international conferences/ seminars dealing with Mughal history. Some of these papers were also published in journals and proceedings of conferences/seminars. Most of the articles published in this present volume have also been frequently quoted by the leading historians for the last four decades.
