About this Item

225 This volume contains wide-ranging surveys of various aspects of the history of Awadh from its position as a province of the Mughal Empire to a successor state, a semi-colony under the Nawabi regime, the British annexation and the resistance in 1857. The manner of Mughal administration, the emergence of the class of taluqadars, the Company’s constant pressure on the Nawabi regime, the cultural and agrarian milieu of a religious establishment, the bibliography of a scholarly rebel of 1857 - all bring home to the reader different facets of the historical personality of Awadh. The studies form an important complement (and corrective) to much of current historical writing of Awadh. About The Author:- Saiyid Zaheer Husain Jafri, is Reader in History at the Delhi University, obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Centre of Advanced Study in History, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh in 1986 for his work on ‘Agrarian Conditions in Awadh, c 1595 to 1856’. He has published many papers on the history of Awadh, a number of which are republished in a revised form in this volume, along with some others published here for the first time. Dr. Jafri’s other main interest is in archival sources of the Mughal period, on which too he has published numerous papers.
