This volume is devoted to the economic and social history of India from the 13th to the 15th century. The book consists of three long chapters, divided into numerous sub-chapters. The first chapter describes the agrarian order during the main period of the Delhi Sultanate (1206–1398), while the second chapter delves into the urban economy and trading world of the same period. The third chapter deals with the fifteenth century, 1398–1526, a period of political divisions. While describing the economy and social structure in north India during the century, the chapter pays special attention to conditions in the Vijayanagara Empire, which flourished during this period in south India. A special feature of the volume, as with others in the series, is the inclusion of long extracts from sources and technical and bibliographical notes appended to each chapter.
