India's Overland Trade with Central Asia and Persia during the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries, Joginder K. Chawla
16 India's Overland Trade with Central Asia and Persia during the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries

Joginder K. Chawla

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2006, 81-215-1160-7 / 9788121511605, Reprint, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The thirteenth century opened new vistas in the world history, particularly Asia. It witnessed the rise and fall of different dynasties and ultimately allowed the Mongols to survive as the mightiest power in China, Russia (Kipchak), Central Asia, and Persia for more than a century. They brought under their sway the Islamic lands of the Orient except India where the Turks had already established themselves as a powerful state during this period. The present study is the first of its kind dealing with India's overland trade with Central Asia and Persia during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The book seeks to interpret the working of the political forces in India and her neighbouring countries which shaped the commercial network of the medieval period. Despite the Mongol devastatations, the yasa of Chingiz Khan and the zeal displayed by the Turks created an aura of mercantile activities. Printed Pages: 196 with 2 folding maps. 030623

19 Kingship and Ideology in the Islamic and Mongol Worlds

Anne F. Broadbridge

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009, 0521118719 / 9780521118712, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 160 x 235 Mm 
What were the attitudes to diplomacy and kingship in the medieval Islamic world? Anne Broadbridge examines struggles over ideology in the Middle East and Central Asia from 1260 to 1405. She explores two very different ideological worlds: the Islamic world of the Mamluk Sultans of Egypt and Syria, and the Mongol world inhabited by the Golden Horde in Central Asia, the Ilkhanids in Iran and Anatolia, the Ilkhanids' successors, and Temür. The relationships among these rival rulers were often highly charged, and diplomatic missions were exchanged in an effort to promote each ruler's ideology. This is the first book to explore what it meant to be a monarch in the pre-modern Islamic world, and how ideas about sovereignty evolved across the period. This groundbreaking work will appeal to scholars of Middle Eastern and Central Asian history, Mongol history, and Islamic history, as well as historians of diplomacy and ideology. Contents Introduction 1. The ideology and the diplomacy 2. The establishment of ideologies (1260?293/ 658?3) 3. The age of Ilkhanid conversion (1295?316/694?16) 4. The age of patronage and Muslim supremacy (1317?1/717?1) 5. Mamluk regional sovereignty and the post-Ilkhanid order (1335?2/736?4) 6. The Temürid invasions and the destruction of Mamluk sovereignty (1382?404/784?07) Epilogue Bibliography. Printed Pages: 256 with 12 halftones, 2 maps, and 4 tables. 033819
