Description
Illustrated on nearly every page with color and black and white photographs, paintings, manuscripts, coins, maps, or drawings, this book describes the Islamic dynasties from the 13th to the 20th centuries whose power came down from the Mongol invasions of Genghis Khan, and who shared the Muslim high civilization that flourished from Iran and Central Asia through Afghanistan and India. Among the leaders presented in lively biographical portraits here are Timur, or Tamerlane, who lived a life of remorseless conquest; Shah Abbas the Great, who brought the achievement of early modern Iran to its peak at Isfahan; Akbar the Great, who fostered an idea of inclusive government for India; and Shah Jahan, who gave India the Taj Mahal.

"A fascinating, thorough history covering dozens of Middle Eastern and Indian leaders from the 13th century on, each struggling with the problems of maintaining strong central power among a widespread, pre-industrial society. When not conquering and pillaging, the profiled rulers—who exhibit tremendous passion and curiosity—experimented with the use of paper currency, built monuments that still stand today and fostered advancements in calligraphy, poetry, architecture, painting, mathematics and astronomy."—Publishers Weekly
