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. Also unlike the original, it only covers the period since the fourteenth century. The whole has been planned over four parts:
- Pt. I The Mughals and their Contemporaries.
- Pt. II Indian States and the Transition to Colonialism.
- Pt. III The Indian Empire and the beginnings of Modern Society.
- Pt. IV The Evolution of Contemporary South Asia.
