Different aspects of the Mughal Empire-its power, wealth, stability, territoriality, exquisite, surreal character, and also its 'decline'-have engaged historians for several decades in a complex, contentious debate. This volume attempts to understand the divergent views and discussions that surround the withering of the empire and focuses on the different paradigms and assumptions that have shaped the interpretations on the decline of the Mughal Empire.
