His exposition of the social and economic role of the bazaars and urban centres in general and in the metropolis of Delhi in particular, is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the history and composite culture that developed during the Delhi Sultanate period. This second edition features a separate chapter on the currency system of the Delhi Sultanate, besides other enlarged chapters. Breaking the conventional belief that urbanization was shaped solely by economic factors, Delhi Sultanate seeks to highlight the social and cultural processes that accompanied economic changes, thereby transforming little-known trading towns into full-fledged centres of learning and culture. I.H. Siddiqui draws on a rich corpus of Persian sources to establish links between economic change and changes in language, literature, teaching, book trade and even pyrotechnics.Delving into unconventional markers of change like food makes the work interesting and informative.The case study of the city of Kalpi is valuable, for it outlines the political, social and cultural ramifications brought by its transformation into an urban city
