This is a valuable addition to recent works on Indi-an History. The author has used all, or nearly all, the available sources, and he has used his material with judgment and acumen. Mr. Beni Prasad has in a a manner exhausted the subject of Jahangir. We can say that the world has now learnt all that it need know about him. A very complete and detailed account of the turbulent reign of the son and successor of Akbar, based on original sources, including many not uti-lized heretofore. One of the most interesting and valu-able Chapters is the long one on ‘Mughal Govern-ment,’ which throws much light on the political ma-chinery of the period.
