0 Reviews
For almost 100 years, the city of Poona served as the de facto capital of the Maratha Empire, which dominated much of the history of India in the 18th century. An important contribution to the urban history of pre-modern India, this book describes Poona's physical and demographic contours, the place of the ruling family in its political and cultural life, the city government, the role of power-brokers in the urban structure, and the city's economy, society, religion, literature, and arts.
