This book studies the history of Early Medieval India into six sections. The first or the introductory section deals with Arab and Turkish invaders upto the close of the 12th century. The next section deals with the foundation of the Sultanate of Delhi and brings out on the one hand the effort of the Ilbaris to wrest supremacy from the hands of the Rajputs and on the other a ceaseless struggle on the part of the latter to regain their lost possessions. The third section deals with the history of the next sixty years and unfolds the story of the expansion of the Sultanate till it reaches its zenith under Muhammad bin Tughluq. The next section marks the stages and character of the decline and downfall of the Sultanate during the next hundred years till it reaches its nadir under Alauddin Alam Shah. Section five presents Afghan effort at establishing their hegemony and concludes by pointing out the circumstances leading to their supersession by Babar. This finishes political and military history. The sixth and the last section begins by examining the character of Rajput Polity and Turko-Afghan Political Institutions and concludes by presenting a general survey of the nature of Early Medieval Society and Culture. At the end of the text, a Chronology and an index has been appended. There are six specially drawn maps which it is hoped will assist correct understanding of the text.
