The New Cambridge History of India

The New Cambridge History of India is a major multi-volume work of historical scholarship published by Cambridge University Press. It replaced The Cambridge History of India published between 1922 and 1937.

The new history is being published as a series of individual works by single authors and, unlike the original, does not form a connected narrative.[1] Also unlike the original, it only covers the period since the fourteenth century. The whole has been planned over four parts:

  • Pt. I The Mughals and their Contemporaries.
  • Pt. II Indian States and the Transition to Colonialism.
  • Pt. III The Indian Empire and the beginnings of Modern Society.
  • Pt. IV The Evolution of Contemporary South Asia.

The first volume was The Portuguese in India by Michael N. Pearson, published in 1987, which was Part I, Volume I.
