Description

About the Book :

Urban Crafts and Craftsmen in Medieval India (Thirteenth-Eighteenth Centuries) discusses the development of non-agricultural production in pre-colonial Indian cities. The authors purpose is twofold : firstly, to analyse the technological, organisational and social evolution of urban craft in medieval India along with the economic and socio-political atmosphere in which this sphere of production existed and, secondly, to compare the above-mentioned processes with their counterparts in other medieval societies, especially the better known European ones, and thus ascertain the level that India had achieved in this sphere by the beginning of colonial era Research material collected form various types of sources allows the author to critically re-assess the established notions of medieval Indian crafts as artistically exquisite but technogically backward and organisationally primitive. Comparative study of stagnant medieval Indian crafts vis-is progressive, European ones makes it possible to realise that in some Industries or technological operations India did really lag behind on others it was ahead, but all in all the level of technology and organisation achieved by urban Industries of medieval India was approximately equal to what Europe had during the craft and even early stage of manufactory period. As far as general socio-political conditions are concerned, this juxtaposition, however is not wholly favourable for India No study of medieval crafts will be adequate if the researcher concentrates exclusively on technology, forms of organisation and economic relations, but forgets the people activities. Bearing this in mind the author undertakes the reconstruction of medieval craftsmans socio-psychological profile and tries to denote the main features of this world outlook The book may be of interest to the scholars and students of medieval Indian history especially its economic, social and cultural aspects,and to all those who, in their thoughts and researchers, try to situate medieval India in world history.
