The Concise Oxford History of Indian Business
The Concise Oxford History of Indian Business
Description
Preface to the concise edition

THE OXFORD HISTORY OF INDIAN BUSINESS HAS BEEN HAILED BY REVIEWERS as the first comprehensive and authoritative work on the subject. It also had very good reception in the market. Encouraged by this the publishers suggested a concise version for the benefit of the non-specialist reader. I liked the idea but found myself incapable of the task. For no author can easily determine what can be deleted from his work without damage to its essential character. Fortunately Jyoti Jumani agreed to my and the publishers suggestion to undertake the responsibility. This volume is the result.

The concise volume faithfully follows the original in every respect- coverage content and even linguistic flavour. However the relatively recent periods particularly the post - Independence phase have received somewhat greater attention than in the original and a new chapter, 'In the Aftermath of Liberalization', has been written specially for this volume. Momentous changes have taken place in the wake of the opening of the economy since the original was written; hence a fresh look.

The idea of bringing out a concise volume of The Oxford History of Indian Business would have never occurred to me but for the suggestion from Nitasha Devasar of Oxford University Press, and but for her gentle push the idea would never have gone beyond the suggestion stage. Further but for Jyoti Jumani's painstaking effort the idea would never have gone become reality. To them thus belongs the credit for this volume.

I must acknowledge the debt of some other persons in shaping this book. Inputs from V. L. mote greatly helped in structuring the chapter on liberalization.

He also took the trouble of going through the draft of this chapter and made very useful suggestions. Usha Jumani, as usual was generous with material and ideas pertaining to recent times. Harish Damodaran furnished some factual details. R. Ramamurthy helped in myriad. Ways and Neeraj Lal procured some illustrations.

I am greatful to all of them for their help. The responsibility for any shortcoming in the treatment of the subject however must necessarily remain mine.

Back of the Book

What are the roots of modern business practices in India? Ever wondered what forces shaped the way Indian business looks today? This book tells the story of the evolution of Indian business from merchants to service providers, focusing on the principle actors whose exploits made the transition possible.

Dwijendra Tripathi, a pioneer in the study of business history in India, provides an engaging account of the business methods and families that makes Indian business what it is today. This fascinating and well- researched book will appeal to anyone interested in the story of Indian business from CEOs to scholars, Professionals, and students.

Dwijendra Tripathi has been Kasturbhai Lalbhai Professor of Business History at the Institute of Management Ahmedabad.

Jyoti Jumani is a freelance teacher, researcher, and writer.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
