Money and the Market in India, 1100-1700
Oxford University Press India, 1994 - History - 316 pages
Economic historians of pre-colonial South Asia have always seen a close relationship between monetarization and commercialization--the growing use of money, and the growing orientation towards the market of procedures. The essays collected in this volume range in their focus from medieval Tamilnadu under the Colas, to Maharashtra in the late-seventeenth and early-eighteenth centuries. They demonstrate that a great deal of regional variation exists in terms of monetary history, and that much work needs to be done before a generalization can be made for all of medieval and early modern India.
