About this Item

The study essentially focuses on the central function of the medieval Kashmir Shahmir Sultanate in relation to surplus extraction and the perpetuation of its domination with its heavy dependence on both Brahmanism and Islam. It seeks to situate the medieval state of Kashmir in the cultural and social traditions of the region. The study is organized around four main aspects: the historical roots of state formation in pre-Sultanate Kashmir: conversion to Islam and the consolidation of social base of power in the Sultanate, the Sayyids, Sultans and the state, a search for legitimacy and the incorporation of the Sultanate in the Mughal state.
