Format: Academic Monograph
Publisher: OUP India
In Climate of Conquest, the author offers a new analysis of the Mughal empire from the vantage of point of war. He eschews the conventional way of writing about war primarily in terms of battles and technologies. Instead, he explores the world of military labour, formation of imperial frontiers, legitimisation of conquest, and influence of environment on military campaigns. What emerges is an interpretation of Mughal empire-building as a highly adaptive, flexible, and accommodative process.
