"Bamber Gascoigne's classic book tells of the most fascinating period of Indian history, the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when the country was ruled by the extraordinarily talented dynasty of emperors known to European travellers as 'the Great Moghuls', for their almost limitless power and incomparable wealth. Here is a unique picture of the way of life of India's most flamboyant rulers - their sublime palaces, their passions, art, science and religion, and their sophisticated system of administration that stabilized the greater part of India and was later adopted by the British"--Back cover

The Christians by Bamber Gascoigne( Visual )

6 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last two millennia, Jesus of Nazareth - an itinerant Jewish preacher who was publicly executed - impacted history more than any other human being. Once a persecuted minority, his followers conquered nations, created artistic and architectural masterpieces, and committed atrocities. In this 13-part documentary, Bamber Gascoigne examines Christianity not as a religion, but as a potential historical force that continues to shape our world. Filmed on location in more than 30 countries around the globe, The Christians shows how one faith has influenced a vast array of cultures and, in turn, how it has adapted to diversity. It takes a penetrating look at emperors and evangelists, monks and madmen, artists and inquisitors as it reveals the conflicts, reconciliations, and controversies of one of the world's most pervasive religions
A brief history of the dynasties of China by Bamber Gascoigne( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By focusing on the key characters of the eight major dynasties, Bamber Gascoigne brings to life 3,500 years of Chinese civilization. His account moves swiftly and revealing through the stunning achievements of language and ideas, cultural treasures and imperial palaces, wars won and lands lost, finally to arrive at the 1912 Revolution, which overthrew the Empire and contained within it the seeds of Communism. In this portrait he opens the door to a world that was for so long inaccessible to the West."--Jacket
A brief history of Christianity by Bamber Gascoigne( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether the son of God, prophet, man or myth, no one has had a greater influence on human history than Jesus of Nazareth. This classic, book, newly updated, tells the story of the Christian faith through the men and women who shaped it. Nothing rouses greater passions than religious differences and the history of Christianity is replete with poltics, intolerance and greed, side by side with the most spiritual experiences. Bamber Gascoigne traces a clear path through the complexities, sets the Christian faith in context with other world religions, and entertains the readers with a varied cast of characters, from the hermit St Simeon, who spent twenty years in the desert on a fifty foot column, to Renaissance popes who manipulated the Church to benefit their illegitimate children." -- Back cover
