Summary
"Bringing together four decades of intensive research, this unique collection examines the functioning of the economy within the political framework provided by the Mughal Empire." "Shireen Moosvi studies specific issues like state revenues, prices, interest rates, and maritime economy, using much new source material. She explores areas that have received little attention in the literature on Mughal history - ecology and settlement pattern, vital statistics as well as work and gender." "In the introduction, the author discusses issues widely debated among the historians of Mughal India. Wide-ranging and comprehensive, this book is essential reading for teachers, scholars, and students of Mughal history. General readers keen to know what India was like before British rule will also find the book interesting."--Jacket
