History

This book gives a detailed account of the political history-careers, conquests and achievements of the Sultans of Delhi. The account of the Turkish Empire opens with a chapter describing the political conditions obtaining in Azam. The third part discusses the origin and theory of kingship; the basis of the state; the position and functions of the Sultan or Emperor; the composition and gradation of the nobility, the constitution of the imperial councils and the list of principal office-bearers and their functions, the organization and ceremonial of the imperial court and the organization of the four Diwans and the department of the state. It views the whole problem in a scientific light. It breaks a new ground and takes the reader back to the past instead of regaling him with latter-day prejudices.
