Bamber Gascoigne's classic book revisits perhaps the most fascinating period of Indian history, the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when the vast country was ruled by its most extraordinarily talented dynasty of emperors. Babur is 5 generation This book gives a brief history and the politics of the first six emperors of the Moghul Empire namely Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb. My initial interest is to read Babur, Akbar and Aurangzeb. 1. Babur (1483-1530). I thought it would be an easy read but I was wrong. How could you fit all of Babur in 37 pages when the stage is huge?

Bamber Gascoigne’s classic book revisits perhaps the most fascinating period of Indian history, the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when the vast country was ruled by its most extraordinarily talented dynasty of emperors. Because of their virtually limitless power and incomparable wealth, these remarkable rulers came to be known to European travelers as “the Great Moguls.” In vital, colorful detail gleaned from meticulous research Gascoigne here presents in all their splendor the palaces of these magnificent moguls at the same time that he examines their passions, their arts, their science and religion, and above all, their sophisticated system of administration, which stabilized the greater part of India to such a successful degree that it was later adopted by the British. Acclaimed by travelers and scholars alike, and beautifully illustrated in color with 16 pages of photographs, Gascoigne’s A Brief History of the Great Moguls offers to anyone with an interest in India’s glorious past an engaging survey of a splendid culture and its singular achievements. “Entertainingly written history ... ravishingly beautiful photographs.”—The Times (London) “Extremely readable.”—Times Literary Supplement
  • Sinredeemer
Old-fashioned sound-and-fury history that emphasizes the importance of rulers and challengers and battles -- but knowledgeable, and colorfully written.
  • Ishnjurus
This is an excellent and must read summaries version of the long Great Mogul history.
  • Morad
Although from India, much of what has been mentioned in this book I did not know. This book is well written and a very good start, since it is presented in an interesting manner. The moguls presented in this book are the main ones i.e., Babur, Humayun, Akbar the great, Jahangir, Shahjahan and Aurangazeb. The moguls were an important part of Indian History and in this book they come across as actual people who once existed along with the rest of the time period. Before you start a warning: Dont look at this book with your present sensibilities, these were people who were a product and a part of their time and not ours. Somehow these brief histories make for a good read. I hope someone writes biographical novels about these colourful rulers.
