Focusing on wider geographical as well as on more specific social and military aspects, the first section deals with issues of Islamic and European expansion in South Asia. The second section examines specific medieval topics such as military service and slavery, legitimacy and religious devotion. The third section represents Kolffs interest in colonial history and his more recent excursions into the realms of Subaltern and Cultural Studies.

A must for every library.
