 DESCRIPTION

A Historical Tour of the Indian Littoral edited by Lakshmi Subramanian
The maritime profile of the Indian subcontinent has emerged in recent years as an important area of historical Investigation and has revived interest in port cities, which are transit points for a whole range of new developments, from colonialism to consumption, from cosmopolitan Cultural expressions to expanding economic opportunities. Central to the maritime story has been the rise and fall of the Indian city, which was the conduit for change and transformation, the crucible of culture and exchange. From the towns of the Indus Civilization and Urban centres of Ancient India, to the Mughal ports and the Cities of Colonial times, there is an underlying thread of continuity that is related to the functions and potential of urban formations. This volume profiles Indian cities along the vertices of overseas trade and thereby charts Indian maritime History from a new Vantage point that does not adhere to conventional assumptions of subcontinental politics.

In addressing some of these issues of Historiography through a survey of select port cities over a long time period, this book attempts to redress the land bias that has characterized the Writing of India's history.
