About the Book:

The book attempts to supply such a beginning, by furnishing an account of the economic position at the close of Akbar`s reign; there is little prospect that adequate materials for a similar study of earlier periods will ever become available, but our knowledge of the closing years of the 16th century appears to be sufficient to justify the attempt. The aim of the book is to present a sketch of the economic life of India at the opening of the 17th century that is to say, at the period immediately antecedent to the first appearance of those new forces which were destined to exercise an increasing and eventually predominant influence on the development of the country. Starting from 1608 when the English ship Hector reached Surat, it is possible to trace the economic story of the next three centuries, first in the narratives of travellers and the early Letter-Books of the East India Company, and then in the more copious official records and publications of later times to that a well-defined period for study is within the reach of our academic institutions.<-p>
