Advanced Study in the History of Medival India Vol -2 JL Mehta
Second in the series, this volume (1526-1707: Mughal Empire) gives a descriptive, analytical and critical survey of the Mughal Empire. The main thesis of the author is that the Mughals were foreign conquerors, albeit Akbar transformed his ruling house into a national monarchy and laid the foundations of a secular nation-state in India.
Historical facts have been reorganised and reinterpreted through clear and illuminating expositions, refreshing characterisation of historic personalities and objective assessment of events and movements. Together with maps, a detailed survey of sources, glossary and an elaborate index the volume makes a notable contribution to the advancement of modern historical literature.

At present he is Reader in the Postgraduate Department of History, Panjab University Evening College, Chandigarh.
