Ashin Das Gupta, Michael Naylor Pearson
Oxford University Press, Dec 24, 1987 - Business & Economics - 363 pages
This collection of essays surveys the history of maritime India from 1500 to 1800, focusing on trade and economic history as well as on the activities of European merchants and local traders. It convincingly argues that even though the Europeans often traversed the Indian Ocean to trade, their presence was not crucial to India's economic stability.
