The Indian subcontinent might seem a nearly complete and self-contained world. Protected by vast mountains and seas, it created its own religions, philosophies, and social systems. And yet this ancient land and its varied societies experienced prolonged and intense interaction with the peoples and cultures of East and Southeast Asia, Europe, Africa, and especially, Central Asia and the Iranian plateau between the 11th and 18th centuries. Richard M. Eaton’s book tells this extraordinary story with relish and originality.
