The New Cambridge History of India

The New Cambridge History of India is a major multi-volume work of historical scholarship published by Cambridge University Press. It replaced The Cambridge History of India published between 1922 and 1937.

The new history is being published as a series of individual works by single authors and, unlike the original, does not form a connected narrative.[1] Also unlike the original, it only covers the period since the fourteenth century. The whole has been planned over four parts:


The Mughals and their Contemporaries

Indian States and the Transition to Colonialism

The Indian Empire and the Beginnings of Modern Society

The Evolution of Contemporary South Asia
