    About the Authors

    Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests – in mathematics, logic, photgraphy, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters.

    As all Carroll admirers know, his book?Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?(1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel?Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.

    The?Alice?books are but one example of his wide ranging Authorsship.?The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and?Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today’s students.?Sylvie and Bruno, published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an 1889 description of weightlessness.

    The humor, sparkling wit and genius of this Victorian Englishman have lasted for more than a century. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.

    Hugh Haughton?is a senior lecturer at the University of York. He edited Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s?Adventures in Wonderland?and?Through the Looking-Glass?for Penguin Classics.

Through meticulous research and painstaking study, Rizvi pieces together a comprehensive account of the five hundred years between the thirteenth and eighteenth centuries, detailing the political histories of the Arabs, Turks, Afghans and Mughals. From his exploration of the social and economic conditions, the state, religion and the fine arts, a vibrant picture emerges of a massive and fertile exchange that would influence the destiny of more than billion people. This volume, along with AL Basham?s classic The Wonder that was India, offers an extensive and engrossing view of the pre-colonial history of India. It is equally for the serious student and the interested reader.
