Mukherjee’s Colonizing Agriculture represents a significant contribution to an understanding of the transformation of the agrarian economy of Punjab under colonial rule… it seeks to arrive at some refreshing and original conclusions.
The present volume is a valuable one not only in terms of its being a comprehensive study of the colonial impact on an agriculturally very important region, but also as an example of a model of historical scholarship with its feet firm on the ground (of hard data) and withstanding temptations towards stratospheric musings.
Mukherjee has examined the evidence available in land records and other contemporary reports of the Punjab government. The bibliography is delightful as are the footnotes…. This book should be read by all reformer economists, even if it is not written by an economist. It provides insights that only historical records, not endless regressions, can provide.
