Abstract: Professor Haynes book is a “magisterial account of the process Douglas Haynes calls ‘weaver and small-scale capitalism.’ Based on an exhaustive investigation he makes even the technical aspects of the weaver economy lucid to the non-specialist reader. He cogently and powerfully situates his work in the larger fields of social, economic and political history. The work marshals an impressive amount of evidence, including an innovative use of oral history sources, to complicate standard South Asian models of political economy.”
