The present volume on Southern India in the late nineteenth century roughly covers the broad economic history of Southern India during the 1880s and 1890s. It dwells on documents collected from a wide spectrum of human activity in Southern India including agriculture, forestry, population, public health, education and sanitation, in each of which the British Raj was involved in collecting information and directing the courses of development in more than one sense.
A large part of Southern India was under ryoytwari settlement and an enormous number of documents were available touching on agricultural operations, agricultural appliances, material conditions of agricultural classes, population change, health and mortality, literacy and primary education, values of livestock and cattle diseases, production and export of cash crops, production and supply of food grains, distribution of waste lands, forests and reclamation of jungle lands, and scarcity and famines.
These twenty years in the Madras Presidency immediately followed three developments earlier in the century. First, this is the period of the last stage of survey and settlement for what has been called the new ryotwari system. Second, the region experienced different measures of the government for the ‘improvement’ of the conditions of the people. Finally, this was also a period of social conflict between the depressed classes like the Paraiyans and landowners of various categories.
Amiya Kumar Bagchi, is currently Emeritus Professor of Economics, Institute of Development Studies Kolkata and was the first Chancellor of Tripura Central University.
Arun Bandopadhyay is formerly Nurul Hasan Professor of History and Dean of the Postgraduate Faculty of Arts at the University of Calcutta and currently Honorary Professor at the University.
