About the Book:

This is a study of Indian economic history. The economic position is sketched at the opening of the seventeenth century. The period covers the reigns of the Mughal Emperors Jahangir and Shah Jahan. Apart from chronological or dynastic consideration, this period has a unity of its own. In the region of commerce it is marked by the practical elimination of the Portuguese, the establishment of Dutch and English merchants in the country, and the first experimental phase of the newcomers` activities; while in the wider economic sphere it covers the most significant stage in the deterioration of Akbar`s adminstrative institutions.<-p>

The author has tried to arrange in such a way that, while it should be intelligible to ordinary readers, it should serve serious students as an introduction to the original literature. The book is divided into ten chapters. In the five appendices, the author has elaborated the details pertaining to the Dutch and English companies. Early Dutch Exports to Europe, Mughal Revenue Statistics, Currency, Weights and Measures and a list of Authorities. The order of the study has been determined mainly by the nature of the material which are available.<-p>
