The historiography of colonialism in India has, by and large, ignored princely India and instead, the inferences drawn from British India are generally applied to the whole of the country. This book makes a strong case for an agrarian history of India that will give due place to princely India. In the process, the author refutes the established theories of imperialist and nationalist historians, dependency theorists, theorists of the colonial mode of production and subaltern studies. Based on considerable archival research and the author's personal acquaintance with the region and its people, this important book provides an alternative to existing approaches.
