Now in its second edition, "An Economic History of India" provides a concise analysis of India's economic history from the Moghul invasions to the colonialism of the twentieth century. Although much has been written on the subject, this study is the first to present India's economic history as a process.
For this edition, the chapters covering the "Green Revolution" and the industrial recession, and population growth and economic development have been completely rewritten to bring the book up to date. Dietmar Rothermund places the development of agriculture and industry into their political contexts and discusses currency and monetary policies, which are of central importance in all periods of Indian history.

`Rothermund deals with essential aspects of Indian economic history in a lucid style ... the book is useful for undergraduate students interested in a short and quick treatise on Asian economic history and economic development.' - CHOICE
