A Short History of Muslim Rule in India By Ishwari Prasad. THE first edition of this book was very favorably received bystudents of Muslim history all over India. Its usefulness is shown by the fact that a second edition has become necessary in such a short space of time. I regret that owing to other engagements of a pressing nature I have not been able to add a chapter on the later Mughals as I had promised in the first edition. But the index has been provided, and care has been taken to remove the errors and discrepancies suggested by scholars of history. I am fully aware of the imperfections that still exist, but 1 Lope kindly critics will continue to favour me with their valuable suggestions from time to time. In theirappreciation lies my reward and in their wellinformed criticism my chance of further improvement.
