1 Tirthankar Roy
India in the World Economy: From Antiquity to the Present
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2013; 1107036399 / 9781107036390; First South Asian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Cross-cultural exchange has characterized the economic life of India since antiquity. Its long coastline has afforded convenient access to Asia and Africa as well as trading partnerships formed in the exchange of commodities ranging from textiles to military technology and from opium to indigo. In a journey across two thousand years, this enthralling book, written by a leading South Asian historian, describes the ties of trade, migration, and investment between India and the rest of the world and shows how changing patterns of globalization have reverberated in economic policy, politics, and political ideology within India. Along the way, the book asks three major questions: Is this a particularly Indian story? When did the big turning points happen? And is it possible to distinguish the modern from the pre-modern pattern of exchange? These questions invite a new approach to the study of Indian history by placing the region at the center of the narrative. This is global history written on India's terms, and, as such, the book invites Indian, South Asian, and global historians to rethink both their history and their methodologies. 037632

2 Tirthankar Roy (Author) & Gurcharan Das (Intro.)
The East India Company: The World's Most Powerful Corporation (The Story of Indian Business)
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0143426176 / 9780143426172; Softcover; New; 
The East India Company is an interesting inspection of how a colonial company defined the way we do business today'-BusinessWorld this groundbreaking study examines how the East India Company founded an empire in India at the same time it started losing ground in business. For over 200 years, the Company's vast business network had spanned Persia, India, China, Indonesia and North America. But in the late 1700s, its career took a dramatic turn, and it ended up being an empire builder. In this fascinating account, Tirthankar Roy reveals how the Company?s trade with India changed it - and how the Company changed Indian business. Fitting together many pieces of a vast jigsaw puzzle, the book explores how politics meshed so closely with the conduct of business then, and what that tells us about doing business now. 'One of the first major attempts to tell the company's story from an Indian business perspective' - Financial Express. Printed Pages: 264. 107407

3 Tirthankar Roy
Traditional History in the Economy of Colonial India (The New Cambridge History of India)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1999; 0521650127 / 9780521650120; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The majority of workers in South Asia are employed in industries that rely on manual labour and craft skills. Some of these industries have existed for centuries and survived great changes in consumption and technology over the last 150 years. In earlier studies, historians of the region focused on mechanized rather than craft industries, arguing that traditional manufacturing was destroyed or devitalized during the colonial period, and that ‘modern’ industry is substantially different. Exploring new material from research into five traditional industries, Tirthankar Roy’s book contests these notions, demonstrating that while traditional industry did evolve during the Industrial Revolution, these transformations had a positive rather than destructive effect on manufacturing generally. In fact, the book suggests, the major industries in post-independence India were shaped by such transformations. Tirthankar Roy’s book offers new and penetrating insights into India’s economic and social history. Printed Pages: 264 with 10 half-tones, 10 tables and 4 maps. 008662
