Abu Fazl’ Allami was one of the most outstanding intellectual figures of his times. Liberal in his religio-political outlook, cosmopolitan in his dealings with the various religious communities of India, seasoned as a diplomat and versatile as a scholar, he occupies a prominent place in the history of medieval political thought.
In an age torn by religious conflicts and tensions, he stood for religious toleration and peaceful co-existence of the various religious and cultural groups. As he was closely associated with the emperor Akbar, whose social and religious outlook made a deep impact on contemporary life and thought, Abul Fazl’s own religious and social ideas deserve a careful study.
Unfortunately his ideas are difficult to separate from those of Akbar, the reason being their identity of outlook and similarity of approach on fundamental problems of religion and society.

New York Times Bestseller – The startling true history of how one extraordinary man from a remote cornerof the world created an empire that led the world into the modern age.
The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in twenty-five years than the Romans did in four hundred. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization. Vastly more progressive than his European or Asian counterparts, Genghis Khan abolished torture, granted universal religious freedom, and smashed feudal systems of aristocratic privilege.
From the story of his rise through the tribal culture to the explosion of civilization that the Mongol Empire unleashed, this brilliant work of revisionist history is nothing less than the epic story of how the modern world was made.
