In Praise of Kings is a ground breaking observe of the long-neglected fifteenth century in South Asian history. Contrary to the traditional center of attention at the Delhi-centred empires which believe this era as an age of decline, this book illuminates the cultural and political dynamism of the era. It reconstructs the fascinating world of the royal courts of Gujarat, including the ones of the Rajput chieftains and the regional sultans, through close readings of rarely used literary works in Sanskrit and Gujarati. The book also complicates every other popularly held perception: that of Gujarat as the land of traders and merchants. As a substitute, it shows how Gujarat’s warrior past used to be also integral to this region’s identity and history.
