Brings together all the architectural patronage attributed to the Shansabanis This book charts the origins and rise of the Shansabanis, a nomadic-pastoralist or transhumant group from modern central Afghanistan. As they adapted and mastered the mores of Perso-Islamic kingship, they created a transregional empire unseen in the region for almost a millennium, since the Kushanas of the early centuries CE. The Shansabanis' imperialism of little more than a half-century belies their longue durée significance: they altered the geopolitical landscapes of eastern Khurasan through the Indo-Gangetic plains, reconnecting these regions in continuous flows of people, objects, and ideas that broadened the Persianate world and had consequences into the modern age of nation-states in Central and South Asia. Alka Patel is Professor in the Department of Art History and in the PhD Program for Visual Studies at the University of California, Irvine.
