9780195630008: The Crisis of Empire in Mughal North India: Awadh and the Punjab 1707-1748 (Oxford India Paperbacks)

The collapse of the Mughal empire has often been characterized as a period of political fragmentation, social unrest, and economic decay. Contrasting two regions in north India--Awadh and the Punjab--Muzaffar Alam contends that even as the empire declined, there emerged a new, regionally-based political order, maintained and controlled by former Mughal rulers. From agrarian uprisings to the jagiardari system, the Sikhs to the Zamindars, this book presents a bold new interpretation of an important transition in Indian government.

"A valuable addition to the literature on 18th-century Mughal successor states."--Choice


"Extremely valuable to scholars in the field." --History
