Sanskrit Narratives of Muslim Pasts

Audrey Truschke

This book explores Sanskrit texts dating from the 1190s to 1721, examining their perspectives on Indo-Muslim rule and the Deccan sultanates, and perceptions about Muslim political figures. Audrey Truschke argues that these histories are critical to studies of Indo-Persian political history and Sanskrit literature and culture.
