Merchants and Colonialism

 
Amiya Kumar Bagchi (Author)
Synopsis

Amiya Kumar Bagchi’s Merchants and Colonialism is a landmark work in economic history and sociology. The author shows us how colonial rule put traders and manufacturers under immense pressure, forcing them to look for survival strategies in a changed economic environment. This resulted in long-term de-industrialization and irreversible damage to traditional modes of production, which had far-reaching economic consequences for India after Independence.
