About the Book:

This volume is the third in the series of the Collected Works of (Late) Professor B R Grover. It is an attempt to present before the readers the writings of Professor B.R. Grover on agrarian problems from ancient to pre-British India. Based on original Persian, Urdu, Marathi, Sanskrit, English, archaeological, and epigraphical sources available in various Archives, Record Offices, and personal collections of erstwhile ?rajas? and officials at different places in India and abroad, these writings bring out several aspects and problems of the agrarian structure during successive periods, specifically highlighting the important aspects of elements of continuity and change from the early history of India to the pre-industrialized phase of this country.

Despite the fact that a majority of the writings being presented in this volume were finalized during the late 1950s and early 1960s and the books published after that period have neither been referred to nor commented upon, these writings are still very relevant and valuable as they have not only taken into consideration practically all the secondary and primary source material then available, but throw a new light on the understanding of the subjects/aspects discussed. With its in-depth analysis and multiple perspectives, this book should be of great interest equally to scholars and students of agrarian system of India.
