It was at the court of Lucknow, above all others in India, that the late Mughal civilization reached the zenith of its splendor and sophistication. This volume, the work of acclaimed essayist, historian, and novelist Abdul Halim Sharar (1860-1926), describes the culture and way of life of the people of Lucknow during the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Long recognized as the most authoritative account of its kind, this updated volume incorporates recent scholarship to describe the development of the Lucknow cultural and social institutions, and the everyday life of the citizens of Lucknow during this rich period.
