Tác giả khác: Percival Spear
*Tóm tắt : This was the prescribed text book for history majors in my college in India. I am not sure how much editing and changes have been made in this version, but the book that we read was pretty well written, and provided a lucid account. Sometimes, it is important to read a basic book to get the big old picture. It is another matter that the interpretation of some of the events may have come under critiicism by later historians, who subscribed to various schools of thoughts, most notably a Marxist interpretation of Indian history .

Nhan đề: Captive princess : Zebunissa, daughter of Emperor Aurangzeb / Annie Krieger Krynicki ; translated from French by Enjum Hamid Số phân loại : 954.0258 A107; Đặc điểm vật lý: xx, 216 p. : ill. ; 26 cm
*Tóm tắt : The book shows the Mughal way of life and sketches the political and religious organization of the empire under Shah Jehan's reign and the austere government of Aurangzeb, the princess' father. The filigree of Zebunissa's life holds debates about her religious beliefs. The prism of her knowledge expanded to the study of calligraphy, Sufism and poetry. By giving herself a pen name Makhfi "The hidden," which had become an amusing and paradoxical disguise, she used it to moderate the 'Light of the World'. For her the name signified a life dramatically suppressed, cut off from the world .
