The Age of Wrath: A History of the Delhi Sultanate

The Delhi Sultanate period (1206–1526) is commonly portrayed as an age of chaos and violence—of rapacious, plundering kings, turbulent dynasties, and the aggressive imposition of Islam on India. But it was also the era that saw the creation of a pan-Indian empire, on the foundations of which the Mughals and the British later built their own Indian empires.


The encounter between Islam and Hinduism also transformed, among other things, India’s architecture literature, music and food. Abraham Eraly brings this fascinating period vividly alive, portraying the many kings—mad, brilliant, astute, cruel - who ruled during this period, and discusses the political, social and cultural developments that transformed India.Combining erudition with powerful storytelling, analysis with anecdote, The Age of Wrath is a superb book.


The Author:

Abraham Eraly is the acclaimed author of three books on Indian history—The Last Spring: The Lives and Times of the Great Mughals (later published in two volumes, as Emperors of the Peacock Throne and The Mughal World), Gem in the Lotus: The Seeding of Indian Civilization and The First Spring: The Golden Age of India.
