Economic History of Early Medieval Northern India

Gian Chand Chauhan (Author)
Synopsis Economic History of Early Medieval Northern India is an attempt to present the picture of agrarian formation and economic, changing which early medieval India had experienced. This book is a comprehensive and systematic study of the economic Institutions such as agriculture, types of crops, nature of peasantry, land grants, internal and domestic trade, urban concept, forced labour and paucity of coins etc. The book does not claim to present a general economic history of early medieval India in the traditional manner. The distinctive characteristic of this book lies in the fact that it present the thesis of economic development and changes which took place during the period of study. An attempt has been made to make an evolution of the one of the most critical periods of Indian history with main focus on agrarian structure and economic institutions. The study has been based both on the literary and epigraphical sources. The book, therefore, present a deteriorating grim scenario about the agricultural and economic condition of the historical period spanning from 7th century to 10th century A.D. It also traces the causal complexities which forced the peasant to accept their fate passively and without a murmur.
