    Economic History of Medieval India, 1200–1500 examines the economic history of India from the thirteenth to the fifteenth century. Divided into four parts, this book presents a full-scale study on the economic conditions of the time and the implications of the economic structures on the politics of India in the medieval period. Providing a much-needed study of the aspects of economic history that have largely been neglected in the studies published earlier, this volume will be of great help to students, researchers and teachers of history, as well as to the lay reader interested in medieval Indian history.
