Abstract [en]

The book presents a set of primary sources generated during a series of armed confrontations between the English East India Company and the Mughal Empire in the 1680s and 1690s.  The central document is the diary of an English soldier who lived through the very destructive Siege of Bombay.  It is accompanied by a number of other related sources generated both by South Asians and by Europeans.  There is also a lengthy introduction by the co-editors that sets the sources in the context of Mughal politics and warfare, English attempts at expansion into the Indian Ocean world, and the extraordinary ethnic and religious complexity of seventeenth-century South Asia.
