This book is a major contribution to the history of Sindh, and consequently to that of Pakistan and South Asia. Beyond the excellence of the research, it must be emphasized that, if the reign of the Mughal rulers has been studied in detail, it is mainly in the imperial context, namely from the centres of power they had created and developed in northern India… Dr Naz has shifted the focus, producing an innovative perspective on how the Mughals exercised power in territories relatively far from the imperial centres, but above all she reveals the leading role they played in developing historiography through the spread of several literary genres. Thus, Dr Naz’s work renews the field of Mughal studies, but at the same time, it is much more than that.

Writing history is not an easy undertaking; you must overcome many obstacles and conduct extensive research as you put together your historical work. The history of Kasur is not specifically covered in any literature. Amjad Zafar Ali, who is in the IT and accounting fields but has written a thorough history of Kasur, is someone I got to know. His debut book, Morning Tea That Never Reached Kasur, was the first English-language history of Kasur ever written. His third book, Historical Archives of Kasur, currently offers extensive information and history about Kasur. He has made an effort to include all facets of life, including Kasur’s 2,000-year history and culture, which have been influenced by Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, and British communities. I wish the very best of luck to Amjad, who has made a great contribution to his city of birth. ISBN: 9786277656058 Publisher: LAHORE SHANASI PUBLICTION Subtitle:
