1 The Crisis of Empire in Mughal North India: Awadh and the Punjab 1707-48

Muzaffar Alam

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2013, 0198077416 / 9780198077411, Second Edition, Paperback, New, 
The period following the death of Aurangzeb has been viewed as the beginning of the decline and decay of the Mughal empire. Examining two contrasting regions of north India-Awadh and Punjab-this pioneering work shows how the period 1707-48 saw the emergence of a new order with local and regional idioms. Muzaffar Alam focuses on the interplay of imperial collapse with regional restructuring. He contends that even as the empire declined, there emerged a new, regionally-based political order, maintained and controlled by former Mughal rulers. From agrarian uprisings to the jagirdari system, the Sikhs to the Zamindars, this book presents a bold new interpretation of an important transition in this period. This edition comes with a new introduction. This book is an important reading for students, scholars, and teachers of Mughal history and early modern India. Printed Pages: 400. 022650

Most professional historians who dip into and read this substantial volume will find that their knowledge of certain corners and aspects of Mughal history and of Indian society during the Mughal period is strengthened and enriched.' -Simon Digby in Economic and Political Weekly I believe that this book would certainly compel the students of Mughal history to reconsider issues, consolidate new research and move beyond the paradigms of W.H. Moreland and Blochmann.' -Meena Bhargava in The Book Review The wealth of this volume lies in its putting together a selection of 18 essays which articulate clearly the shifting trends in the understanding of the Mughal state. The articles are put in context by the editors, ... which is a splendid historiographical survey on Mughal researches.' -Seema Alavi in Biblio. Printed Pages: 548. 033906
