Reviews

  • By rethinking this history as India's 'Persianate age', Eaton breaks free from religious sectarianism that projects today's tensions into the past ... His book is a fine tribute to India.

    Tanjil Rashid, The Times
  • A richly researched, badly needed and wholly convincing account ... World history proves its worth.

    John Keay, Literary Review
  • Richard Eaton employs rich empirical detail to demonstrate that intellectual encounters between the Sanksrit and Persian worlds were not tied to any one religion and that the two were not hostile ... and does so with great panache.

    Rudrangshu Mukherjee, Business Standard
