1 Kumkum Chatterjee
Merchants, Politics and Society in Early Modern India: Bihar: 1773-1820
E.J. Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 1996; 9004103031 / 9789004103030; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This monograph deals with the social and political context of commercial activity in early modern India - a period during which Eastern India (and Bihar) experienced the transition to British colonial rule. As a point of departure from existing scholarly literature that usually studies this transition in material terms, this volume uses an approach that takes into account the configuration of social relations and political connections within which, it argues, commercial activity was embedded. Using merchants and bankers as its subjects, this book deals with the structure of trade and banking, the position of merchants in the cultural order and the role of the state in perpetuating this order. 'Thus this work adds much to our knowledge of the interaction beween commerce, politics and society in Bihar and contains insights that are of general relevance to many other regions of India.' S. Arasaratnam, South Asia. Readership: All those interested in the history of British imperialism, the social and economic history of early modern India and the nature of the impact of colonial rule on India. Kumkum Chatterjee, Ph.D. (1989) in History, Calcutta University, is Assistant Professor of History at the Pennsylvania State University. The author of several journal articles, she has a broad research interest in the social and economic history of early modern India. Printed Pages: 285 with 7 illustrations and maps. 038884
