Originally planned as a festschrift for Dharma Kumar, this collection of outstanding essays has recently appeared as a special issue of IESHR. The essays represent a diversity of views and methods, all of which are brought to bear on issues concerning various aspects of the economy, society and culture of colonial India. Particular topics focused on include the agrarian history of South India, common lands in western India, the nexus between trade and production, the textile trade in twentieth-century South India, the nature of collaboration and conflict between the Dutch East India Company and private Portuguese traders in the Indian Ocean, adventurers who accompanied and participated in the colonial transition in South India and the rise of the coffee house in colonial Tamil Nadu. In the Introduction Sanjay Subrahmanyam attempts to carry out the difficult exercise of making sense of Indian historiography . For the book version, the editor has expanded on this Introduction, an d he has also added two more essays: Ravi Ahuja s State Formation and Famine Policy in Early Colonial India', and Thomas Trautmann's 'Dr Johnson and the Pandits: Imaging the Perfect Dictionary in Colonial Madras'.Eminent historians have contributed to this volume in memory of Dharma Kumar, whose intellectual contribution as an economic historian and editor is undisputed. This collection of outstanding essays represents the dynamic aspect of the history writing about the colonial period, with one eye always trained on its effects on understanding contemporary India. Sanjay Subrahmanyam s lucid introduction fulfils the task of making sense of Indian historiography and its evolving profile. Among the range of areas addressed by these essays, issues relating to south Indian agrarian history are covered by David Ludden and Tsukasa Mizushima, and the regional-language documentation regarding common lands in western India by Sumit Guha. Ravi Ahuja analyses the famine policy of the ea rly East India Company, and John Richards, Tirthankar Roy and Om Prakash address different aspects of the issue of trade in colonial India. Subrahmanyam uses a set of biographical instances to map colonial transitions in South India. Thomas Trautmann s essay looks at early colonial dictionaries in Madras to better understand the nature of early colonial cultural policy. A. R. Venkatachalapathy describes the rise of the coffee house in Tamil Nadu through an engaging combination of social and cultural history. Printed Pages: 336.
