Any theory about the decline of the Mughal Empire must fulfill two apparently contradictory criteria. It must be powerful enough to explain “Why the decline?” but it must also be subtle enough to answer the question “Why was that decline so long?” The sheer length and depth of the subject defy compression and there are no simplistic ways to explain how the Mughals, once weakened, seemed to find such extraordinary durability within their weakness.

The British arrived in India when the Mughals were dominant. If the Empire managed to survive from its greatest territorial extent in 1707 to its extinction in 1858, then what was it doing right for those last one hundred and fifty one years?
This eBook tries to answer these questions.
