"This volume brings together, for the first time, several of Professor Irfan Habib's seminal essays, representing more than three decades of scholarship and providing an insightful interpretation of the main currents in Indian history from the standpoint of Marxist historiography. In these, he examines the role played by the peasantry and caste in Indian history; explores the forms of class struggle and the stage of economic development in Mughal India; analyses the impact of colonialism on the Indian economy; and chronicles the changes in Marx's perception of India. The painstakingly researched and immensely erudite essays make up a volume that is indispensable for scholars and students of Indian history.". Bookseller Inventory # 61594
