Description


When this book was originally published in 1989 here had been virtually no studies of the country's historical demography. This volume was significant for 3 reasons: it contributed greatly to the knowledge of India's population history; it had major implications for the work of social and economic historians of India; and lastly the Indian context provides an excellent laboratory in which to investigate certain large-scale demographic phenomena - among others the experience of bubonic plague, influenza, cholera and famine.
