520    "For over five hundred years, Muslim dynasties ruled parts
       of northern and central India, starting with the Ghurids 
       in the 1190s through the fracturing of the Mughal Empire 
       in the early eighteenth century. Scholars have long drawn 
       upon works written in Persian and Arabic about this epoch,
       yet they have neglected the many histories that India's 
       learned elite wrote about Indo-Muslim rule in Sanskrit. 
       These works span the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire and
       discuss Muslim-led kingdoms in the Deccan and even as far 
       south as Tamil Nadu. They constitute a major archive for 
       understanding significant cultural and political changes 
       that shaped early modern India and the views of those who 
       lived through this crucial period. Audrey Truschke offers 
       a groundbreaking analysis of these Sanskrit texts that 
       sheds light on both historical Muslim political leaders on
       the subcontinent and how premodern Sanskrit intellectuals 
       perceived the "Muslim Other." She analyzes and theorizes 
       how Sanskrit historians used the tools of their literary 
       tradition to document Muslim governance and, later, as 
       Muslims became an integral part of Indian cultural and 
       political worlds, Indo-Muslim rule. Truschke demonstrates 
       how this new archive lends insight into formulations and 
       expressions of premodern political, social, cultural, and 
       religious identities. By elaborating the languages and 
       identities at play in premodern Sanskrit historical works,
       this book expands our historical and conceptual resources 
       for understanding premodern South Asia, Indian 
       intellectual history, and the impact of Muslim peoples on 
       non-Muslim societies"--|cProvided by publisher
