This book draws on Dutch, Tamil, and English sources to document India's overseas trade and commercial economy during what was arguably their most dynamic and productive period. The author looks at four maritime zones--Gujarat, Malabar, Coromandel, and Bengal--examining their ports, seas, and commerce, and sketching the general trends of this commerce and the major external and internal influences that had an impact on them.
