Description

The eighteenth century in Indian history has long been subject to debate among historians. As part of the prestigious series, this volume presents key arguments of this debate through a selection of important readings. Was the eighteenth century a Dark Age or was it a period of economic boom? Did it mark a sharp break or was it a period of continuity and change? These and other questions concerning the nature of colonial political culture are discussed by contributors while Alavi’s exhaustive introduction places them in the context of the larger debate.

Review:
‘Represent[s] some of the most important works…an interesting range of issues…[this volume] impart[s] a new dimension to the ongoing debate…immensely helpful to students, scholars, and the general readers.’
—Indian Historical Review
