9781906598181: Shah Jahan: The Rise and Fall of the Mughal Emperor

Shah Jahan was the ruler of the Mughal empire, his name translating literally from the Persian as 'King of the World'. After ruthlessly suppressing his rivals, he went on to promote Mughal artistic and architectural achievements to the zenith of their creativity. He is responsible not only for the Taj Mahal - the tomb to his beloved wife Mumtaz - but also for the Pearl Mosque, the Red Fort, Jama Masid in Delhi, the Shalimar Gardens of Kashmir and the priceless Peacock Throne.

About the Author:

Fergus Nicoll has been a current affairs journalist for the BBC since 1988. His work has enabled him to travel widely throughout the Middle East and South Asia.

Review:

'But his [Nicoll's] real claim to novelty is in providing the first book-length study of this remarkable emperor since R. N. Saksena in 1932, and doing so in manner which deserves to bring a new following to Mungal history.' -- Francis Robinson TLS 20100514
