Publisher's Summary

Aurangzeb Alamgir (r. 1658-1707), the sixth Mughal emperor, is widely reviled in India today. Hindu hater, murderer, and religious zealot are just a handful of the modern caricatures of this maligned ruler. While many continue to accept the storyline peddled by colonial-era thinkers - that Aurangzeb, a Muslim, was a Hindu-loathing bigot - there is an untold side to him as a man who strove to be a just, worthy Indian king. In this bold and captivating biography, Audrey Truschke enters the public debate with a fresh look at the controversial Mughal emperor.

very superficial, biased

author is basically trying to fit the curve she desires into a set of data points selectively chosen just to project a contrarian viewpoint. afterall it's news only if the man bites the dog and not the other way round. also very superficial.. and she is a professor!! one can only Marvel at the amazing standards of academic rigor in Newark College!!
