“A good overview of the various trading communities of Ancient India, and how they interacted with each other as well as other institutions such as the monarchy and religion.”
This was first written as a doctoral thesis in the early 1900’s and revised by Majumdar a few decades later, but I recommend it for anyone who wants to know about the evolution of the guild system and how the ancient Indian economy and production were organized.” — Review by Zahen Khan as it appears in “goodreads”
