    1. Author's strategy in his book in 3 simple steps-1. Lets denounce each and every historian who has put his view on the medieval period of Indian History.3. Lets give statistics without any basis like so and so %age of army under so and so Mughal ruler belonged to so and so religion.3. Even though Aurangzeb destroyed temples during his reign, reimposed jiziyah & if the historian from his age proclaim he ordered to destroy the temples and to ban public practice of religion other than his own - [...]


    2. One of the most un-interesting books I have ever come across. No references are given for any content, which kind of makes me question the credibility of the book. The Reason why Indians hate history is because Historians Like Satish are incapable of writing good history.


    3. As part of my preparations for Civil Services, I had to read this book comprehensively, and on several occasions. Recent histrionics (courtesy the Elections) over medieval Indian history had rather shaken me, and I felt that a return to the basic secular mode through this book might clarify the perspectives a little. Enjoyed it, despite its brevity and rather sweeping observations (without a single bibliographical support which appear even more flimsy), it's a good read, and a good primer for an [...]


    4. Medieval India was filled with wars, plunders, invaders. Most of these invasions, plundering obviously carried out by Muslim invaders. While their primary motive may be to loot the great Indian wealth, in the course and in resonance with events in Central Asia, they also wanted to ascertain the Islamic supremacy. A major part of that being destruction of temples, and executions of non-believers, opposers, and taking women as prizes of their invasions (which ultimately lead to Jauhar by Rajput wo [...]


    5. This book is not for interest reading.It covers all most of the medieval Indian history in a timely ordered manner.Usually recommended for civil service aspirants UPSC,SSC,CDS. The language used is simple and not complicated.If you are preparing for any of these exam and you need little deep information about medieval India you can definitely use this book.For me it was useful.


    6. Gives a complete picture of political, economic and cultural conditions of 1000 medieval years from 8th to 18th century. Would be very useful for civil service aspirants.


    7. This book gives a rough overview of the time period between 800 A.D. to 1700 A.D around the time the Mughal Empire started disintegrating. It is meant as an introduction to those people who don't have much idea of medieval History of India. It is a good book to start with and then you can move to more books which cover niches such as various local histories or so.The only fault I found with this book is the author's assumption that some parts of History are well known and so doesn't expound on t [...]




    8. Dull narrative style. Filled with innumerable unnecessary details. The author goes on for pages without making any significant points.


    9. Good overview. The author limits himself by merely stating the facts and does not go beyond this. Though the skipping of some incidents, which the author says are too well known to be told, was kind of a damper. Why skip something interesting like these in a monotonous narration?



    10. The language could be better, but the author does an amazing job of describing a thousand years' history of a diverse land in about 400 pages.
