An Economic History of India: From Pre-Colonial Times to 1991


This compact synthesis describes the economic history of India from the Moghul invasions, through the East India Company and colonialism to the twentieth century. Much has been written on the Indian economy, but this is the first major attempt to present India's economic history as a process. Rothermund places the development of agriculture and industry in political context and discusses currency and monetary policies, which are of central importance in all periods of Indian history.In this paperback edition the chapters covering the 'Green Revolution' and the Industrial Recession, and Population Growth and Economic Development, have been rewritten to bring the book totally up-to-date.
