Empire of the Great Mughals by Annemarie Schimmel Empire of the Great Mughals, Paperback (July 2006)

The Mughal empire (1526 1857) has long been viewed as a wonderland of unimaginable treasure; it was in fact the mightiest Islamic empire in the history of India. This book describes the political, military and economic rise of the Mughals, their system of rule, and their gradual collapse, finally supplanted by the British colonial empire in 1857.
