KIRKUS REVIEW

The Mughul emperors, who ruled the greater part of the Indian sub-continent from 1526 to 1712, created opulent, artful cities. Their tradition was derived from a multiform heritage--primarily they were Turks, but with Mongol, Persian, and Hindu blood. Dr. Hambly illuminates the contributions of each element of the tradition in a solid text (equipped with notes, glossary, bibliography) and Wire Swaan assembles photographs of important landmarks, miniatures and bibelots from American and European collections.
