A History of India View details

The course will begin by looking closely at the affairs of northern India and make some assessment of the continuation of the Gurjara Rajput dynasties. We will analyse the character of the other regional kingdoms across India by the same period, including the emergence of Hoysala empire of the southern Deccan, the Kakatiya dynasty and the continuation and eventual decline of the Chalukya dynasties. We will also go on to look at the continuation, expansion and final decline of the Chola of the Tamil south, looking in detail at their administration and reasons for their extended prosperity. We will also consequently consider why no dynasty was able to create a single hegemony across the subcontinent, before making some detailed assessment of the emergence and importance of the Sultanate of Delhi and the subsequent later evolution of Hinduism, temple patronage as well as a sustained cultural Indian influence across the wider region of south-east Asia.
