Description

Babar was the founder of the Mughal dynasty in India, but he transmitted to his successors only the idea of mere conqueror. It was Akbar, his grandson, who recognised the need for a union in the interests of the conqueror and the conquered for the foundation of a powerful empire. An empire which, rooted in the people’s hearts and minds, would take strength from, but not be dependent on the personality of the ruler. Malleson’s Akbar and The Rise of The Mughal Empire is a colorful biography of a forward thinking and multi faceted leader, skillfully sketched from the accounts of historians of Akbar’s era. It paints a fascinating picture of the ruler’s life and the tumultuous times he lived in. It also provides an insight into the powerful ideals by which he governed and with which he shaped one of the greatest empires in Indian history.
