Book Summary

Detailed

In this work of interrelationship between Indian proto-industrialization and modern world system, the author studies the intricate processes, mechanisms and techniques of interdependence during the 17th and the 18th centuries. In a detailed analysis of establishing hegemony over the modern world system by hegemons (Dutch, 17th century, English, 18th century), both the volumes comprehend coherently the methodology and processes involved in the expansion of Indian economy initially, and incorporation and integration of it into the ambit of modern world system in the 18th century. One of the latent aims in a study like this is to highlight the tentative technicalities responsible for peripheralizing India. The book also describes how the modern world system broadened, intensified and diversified the horizon of world market for Indian proto-industrial goods by establishing hegemony over world oceanic space and offering optimal oceanic security to international trading companies and private ocean operators. Such a politico-socio-economic global system hardly could be managed without environmental, climatic, maritime and epidemiological negativity in the peripheral regions. These issues also constitute vital organs of the present work. By bringing together and analysing the existing literature available in different languages, the author offers a fascinating overview of the deep penetrating impact of modern world system on early modern India which promises to be of great utility to students of Indian, European, oceanic, medical, environmental and proto-industrial histories.
