"Before the age of Industrial Revolution, the great Asian civilisations - whether located in the Middle East, India, South-East Asia, or the Far East - constituted areas not only of high culture but also of advanced economic development. They were the First World of human societies. This book examines one of the driving forces of that historical period: the long chain of oceanic trade which stretched from the South China Sea to the eastern Mediterranean, passing through a series of rich urban emporia. It also looks at the natural complement of the seaborne commerce, its counterpart in the caravan trade. In analytical terms, the book emphasises the methods of multi-dimensional history by highlighting the intricate relationship between space, time and structure. Its main achievement is to show how socially determined demand derived from cultural habits and interpretations operated through the medium of market forces and relative prices. It points out, for the first time, the unique and limiting features of Asian commercial capitalism, and shows how the contribution of Asian merchants was valued universally, in reality if not legally and formally."
Reinterpreting Indian Ocean worlds : essays in honour of Kirti N. Chaudhuri by Stefan Halikowski Smith( )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Indian Ocean World was an idea borne out by researchers in economic history and trade in the 1980s in response to the compartmentalization of specific area studies within the wider rubric of Asian civilisations and culture. Prof. Kirti N. Chaudhuri's books Trading World of Asia and the English East India Company (1978) and then Trade and Civilization in the Indian Ocean (1985) figured amongst the forefront of this new movement in historical thinking, undertaking detailed historical analys

Society and ideology : essays in South Asian history presented to Professor K.A. Ballhatchet( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, commemorating nearly forty years during which Professor K.A. Ballhatchet taught at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, offers varied but coherent studies relevant to questions of ethnicity in South Asia. It goes beyond the recognition that identities are constructed, towards an understanding of the context and conditions in which particular kinds of community are possible. A secondary theme is the means and importance of the interpretation of texts. A third is the impact of the intrusions of colonial rule upon South Asia's practices and self-perceptions. The subjects are considered from pre-Mughal times to the recent past, and in both India and Sri Lanka. The contributors are K.N. Chaudhuri on the idea of the barbarian; Peter Hardy on Indo-Muslim historical writing; Avril Powell on conversions from Islam to Christianity; John Rogers on European perceptions of, and A.P. Kannangara on caste rhetoric in, Sri Lanka; Peter Robb on the early impact of British rule on Muslims; Geoffrey Oddie on hook-swinging; Ian Catanach on plague and Bombay communities; Dagmar Engels on childbirth and Bengali women; and Rosalind O'Hanlon on approaches to communalism in Western India. Peter Robb provides a critical introduction

This is a study of agricultural development in undivided Bengal during the period 1920-1946. The first part of the book is devoted to a close examination of the quality of the officially published crop statistics and a detailed analysis of the trends in cropped area, output and yield per acre.
