The Economy of Modern India : From 1860 to the Twenty-First Century, Hardback Book

The Economy of Modern India : From 1860 to the Twenty-First Century Hardback

Part of the The New Cambridge History of India series

Description

Rapid economic growth has put India at the centre of current debates about the future of the global economy.

In this fully revised and updated text, B. R. Tomlinson provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging account of the Indian economy over the last 150 years.

He sets arguments about growth, development and underdevelopment, and the impact of imperialism, against a detailed history of agriculture, trade and manufacture, and the relations between business, the economy and the state.

The new edition extends the coverage right up to the present day, and explains how one of the largest countries in the world has sought to achieve economic progress and lasting development, despite institutional weaknesses, rigid structures of political and social hierarchy, and the legacy of colonialism.
