Abstract "The Courts of the Deccan Sultanates In the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, courtliness was crucial to the political and cultural life of the Deccan. Divided between six states competing for territory, resources, and skills, the medieval and early modern Deccan was a region of striking ethnic, linguistic, and religious diversity. People used multi-faceted trans-regional networks--mercantile, kinship, friendship and intellectual--to move across the Persian-speaking world and to find employment at the Deccan courts"-- Provided by publisher.
