This book presents a comprehensive account of the structural changes in India's economy initiated by colonial rule and globalization. It provides an understanding of the country's political and economic transition as it evolved into a stable democratic state. Capturing a crucial time span of 90 years, it attempts to connect present-day economic trends in India in the context of the country's economic history.
The book broadly covers: transition to colonialism-impact on education, law, business organization, and land rights trends in macroeconomic aggregates-national income, population, labour, savings, and investment; major sectors of development-agriculture, mining, industry, infrastructure, banking, and trade; and economic change in India post-Independence.
Reader-friendly and accessible, the third edition offers
clearly-defined concepts, wider coverage of themes with a brief overview
