      I came across Jadunath Sarkar's name first in the bibliography of Ranjit Desai's Shreeman Yogi. In a foreword to that book Narhar Kurundakar laments the fact that no historian of Sarkar's stature was writing on Shivaji (though Sarkar himself wrote a well-regarded book on Shivaji).Upon looking him up I found that he was an eminent historian who spent 25 years of his life writing a detailed history of Aurangzeb (he spells the name Aurangzib).I have just started reading the book and will try to upd [...]

      This is an excellent book, and while it is an abridged version of his full history of Aurangzeb, it is exhaustive in itself. I am glad that I found this book.

      A very interesting account of a famed cruel Moghul who practised religious discrimination and ruled very long. How policies of conflict and religious intolerance can lead to downfall has been effectively brought out in this book. The laments of a dying monarch like Auranzib should serve as a lesson to all those in power.

      Great historian India ever produced. After this book i couldnt stop buying Shivaji and his times.

    6. Ruru Ghoshal says:

      "The retrogression of medieval Indian civilisation under Aurangzib is noticeable not only in the fine arts - the decay of which was only the outward manifestation of it - but still more in the low intellectual type of the new generation. As the seventeenth century wore on, the older nobility nourished on the manly traditions of Akbar and Shah Jahan, gifted with greater independence of spirit, and trained with greater resources and responsibility - gradually died out, and their places in camp and [...]
