Indian History: A Russian Viewpoint
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8173070806 / 9788173070808; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This collection of essays was compiled to offer the readers an Insight into the present state of Indian History studies in Russia. The contributors represent the national school of Indian studies which has worked out certain traditions, views and methods that may be close or similar to the approaches of the Indian or Western scholars and at the same time be somewhat different from them. The Book is divided into three thematic parts. Part 1 discusses various aspects of the centuries-long contact between Russia, India and their common neighbours like Central Asia, China and Tibet. The Relations are realized and presented in different aspects and dimensions : Economic, political and human, the latter aspect implies the influence of political links and alliances, rivalries and conflicts upon the individual lives and destinies. Part 2 comprises contributions into the field which has been the most developed in the Soviet school of Indian History studies (and in India itself too), with the main emphasis upon the agrarian sphere of socio-economic life. Part 3 brings together textual studies and the contributions to the history of ideas, socio-religious concepts and culture within a wide temporal range, embracing ancient, medieval and modern periods of Indian history. The present publication shows that the Russian school of Indian history studies (along with the fraternal schools of Indian literature and language studies) continues to exist despite many odds and dramatic changes that befell Russia in the end of the twentieth century. It draws Inspiration from the Russian public's never ending interest in Indian history and culture, from the objective necessity for both the Russian and the Indian peoples to know each other better and thus to strengthen the links of our friendship and cooperation.Printed Pages: 226. 101198

Urban Crafts and Craftsmen in Medieval India (Thirteenth-Eighteenth Centuries)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 812151083X / 9788121510837; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
Urban Crafts and Craftsmen in Medieval India (Thirteenth-Eighteenth Centuries) discusses the development of non-agricultural production in pre-colonial cities. The author's purpose is twofold: firstly, to analyse the technological, organizational and social evolution of urban crafts in medieval India along with the economic and socio-political atmosphere in which this sphere of production existed and, secondly, to compare the above-mentioned processes with their counterparts in other medieval societies, especially the better known European ones, and thus ascertain the level that India had achieved in this sphere by the beginning of colonial era. Research material collected from various types of sources allows the author to critically re-assess the established notions of medieval Indian crafts as artistically exquisite but technologically backward and organizationally primitive. Comparative study of "stagnant" medieval Indian crafts vis--vis "progressive" European ones makes it possible to realize that in some industries or technological operations India did really lag behind, on others it was ahead, but all in all the level of technology and organization achieved by urban industries of medieval India was approximately equal to what Europe had during the craft and even early stage of manufactory period. As far as general socio-political conditions are concerned, this juxtaposition, however, is not wholly favourable for India. No study of medieval crafts will be adequate if the researcher concentrates exclusively on technology, forms of organization and economic relations, but forgets the people who were involved in these activities. Bearing this in mind the author undertakes the reconstruction of medieval craftsman's socio-psychological profile and tries to denote the main features of his world outlook. The book may be of interest to the scholars and students of medieval Indian history, especially in economic, social and cultural aspects, and to all those who, in their thoughts and researches, try to situate medieval India in world history.
