In recent decades, private investment has led to an economic resurgence in India. But this is not the first time the region has witnessed impressive business growth. There have been many similar stories over the past 300 years. India's economic history shows that capital was relatively expensive. How, then, did capitalism flourish in the region? How did companies and entrepreneurs deal with the shortage of key resources? Has there been a common pattern in responses to these issues over the centuries? Through detailed case studies of firms, entrepreneurs, and business commodities, Tirthankar Roy answers these questions. Roy bridges the approaches of business and economic history, illustrating the development of a distinctive regional capitalism. On each occasion of growth, connections with the global economy helped firms and entrepreneurs better manage risks. Making these deep connections between India's economic past and present shows why history matters in its remaking of capitalism today.

Review:

'Roy has written a book of stunning intellectual ambition. He provides a brilliant synthesis of the long-run development of Indian capitalism, but more importantly still offers a compelling explanatory framework which shows how the changing roles of the global economy and the state influenced access to capital and knowledge'. Geoffrey Jones, Isidor Straus Professor of Business History, Harvard Business School, Massachusetts

'This book is a sweeping study of Indian business history from the eighteenth century to the present. A Business History of India provides an invaluable analytical perspective that elucidates the structure of both Indian and multinational firms in the past and changing business environments ... Highly readable ... would be a superb text in any course on Indian business/economy'. Douglas E. Haynes, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire

'This fascinating book weaves the intricate details of Indian business history into the backdrop of changing policies, governments and international contexts. An unusual and exciting contribution to economic and business history.' Bishnupriya Gupta, University of Warwick

Book Description:

In recent decades, private investment has led to a resurgence of capitalism in India. The nation has experienced other episodes of business growth in the past, which, Roy argues, share similarities to today. On each occasion of growth, connections with the global economy helped firms and entrepreneurs better manage risks.
