This book traces the evolution of north Indian towns and merchant communities from the decline of Mughal dominion to the consolidation of British empire. Focussing on the network of towns, bazaars, and merchant communities; and their impact on colonial trade and administration, it offers a new perspective on eighteenth-century India. This edition comes with a new introduction.
