A conjecture. Did not British historians wish to paint the picture of a Mughal EMPIRE rather than the rebellion of Hindu Marathas as a point of "order" for Indian colonial citizens? The Marathas were the "wrong" image for a British EMPIRE who wished to control their "crown jewel" colony, India.

In thinking about the global Hispanic Monarchy and the comparative study of 17th century rebellions and revolutions, why is it that I have never seen the revolution of the Marathas against the regime of Aurangzeb (1618-1707) included in the comparisons? In terms of the numbers of dead and its geographic extension, it was certainly the greatest revolution of the 17th century. Yet, it doesn’t get a chapter in Jack Goldstone’s The Encyclopedia of Political Revolutions (1998) or even merit a mention.

Europe and the East:
Self and Other in the History of the European Idea
University of East Anglia, Norwich
14-16 June 2017
I'm forwarding the following announcment at the request of a colleague:
An unfinished dissertation in 17th Century Russian-Dutch relations (Columbia University), along with notes and other research materials gathered during two fellowships, in Moscow and The Hague, over fifty years ago, is now in the possession of the family of a deceased former History professor. Unable to assess this material themselves and unwilling to discard it unseen, the family invites inquiries from scholars in the field, at any stage of their careers, who might be interested in evaluating and possibly taking possession of it.
