Summary and Info
European traders first appeared in India at the end of the fifteenth century and established corporate enterprises in the region, such as the English and Dutch East India companies. This volume considers how, over a span of three centuries, the Indian economy expanded and was integrated into the premodern world economy as a result of these interactions. By documenting the existing literature, the author provides a fascinating overview of the impact of European trade on the precolonial Indian economy that will be of value to students of Indian, European and colonial history.
