The Great Mughals and Their India by Dirk Collier

Category: Historical Fiction
Publisher: Hay House Publishers India

The Mughal dynasty and its cultural and architectural legacy – the world-famous Taj Mahal being the most prominent – is an inexhaustible source of inspiration to historians, writers, film-makers, artists and everyone else.

The reason for this is two-fold.  First and foremost, the history of the Mughal dynasty happens to be a fascinating story, with all the ingredients of classical drama: ambition and frustration, triumph and despair, grandeur and decline, love and hate, loyalty and betrayal. It offers ample food for thought and reflection on the human condition.

Secondly, and more importantly, Mughal history deserves to be widely read and reflected upon, because of its lasting cultural and political relevance to the Indian subcontinent and the world. It is a constant source of inspiration and reflection for generations to come.

History books should be accurate, informative, and entertaining.  This is exactly what The Great Mughals and their India has to offer: insightful, highly readable and entertaining, it provides the reader with an accurate and thought-provoking account of one of the most inspiring stories in the history of humankind.
