Peasants, Famine and the State in Colonial Western India

By (author)D. Hall-Matthews

This book is among the first to examine such a process in detail, by studying poor peasants in Ahmednagar district, Western India, between 1870 and 1884. It does so by investigating their factors of production – land, capital and labour – as well as markets in credit and the cheap foodgrains they produced and, above all, their relationship with the colonial state.
