Dr. Najma Perveen Ahmad has analysed the development of Hindustani Music during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries ad and has studied such texts as Raag Darpan, Tohfat-ul-Hind, Usulun-Naghmat-e-Aasifi and Naadirat-e-Shahi. What she provides in the pages of the book is an authentic survey of music during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and its impact on contemporary Hindustani Music.
