First published in 1971, Bamber Gascoigne's classic book depicts India in the 16th and 17th centuries, the period when the country was ruled by an extraordinarily talented dynasty of emperors; the "Great Moghuls," as they were known to European travelers, were masters of almost limitless power and wealth. In his vivid portrait of these flamboyant rulers, illustrated with his wife Christina's striking color photos as well as artifacts and works of art, Gascoigne gives us the Moghuls' sublime palaces, including the Taj Mahal; their passions for art, science, and religion; and their sophisticated system of administration that stabilized the greater part of India.
