The monograph surveys the developments within the Indian economy during the period of the high tide of colonial domination between the 1857 Rebellion and the First World War. Its various sub-chapters deal with population, gross product and prices; tribute, imperialism of Free Trade, and the construction of railways; peasant agriculture, plantations, commercialization of agriculture and its impact on rents, peasant incomes and agricultural wages; and rural de-industrialization, modern industries, tariff and exchange policies; banking and finance; and fiscal system, tax-burden and the rise of economic nationalism. There are extracts from contemporary comments and reports; technical notes on such matters as computing national income, counterfactual analysis, etc., and short bibliographies accompanying each of the five chapters.

 

Review

The analytical handling and the objective treatment of the topic makes the book very scholarly and a useful sourcebook for further research... the historical perspective given in the book helps us to appreciate the hard effort put in by our forefathers in building up our economy to what it is today. -- Edwin Rodrigues Indica (Journal of the Heras Institute of Indian History and Culture)
