Natural Disasters and Indian History (Oxford India Short Introducations)
Description
About the Book

Indians have lived with a high risk of suffering famines, floods, and earthquakes. What did they do to rebuild their lives? Did the responses change over time?

This short introduction is a fascinating study of the social and economic history of natural disasters in India. Analysing some of the greatest natural disasters from 1770 to 1935, the author argues that our understanding of such events depends on the timescale we adopt. In the short-run view, natural disasters destroy lives, property, and the rules of society. A long-run view, however, reveals a more silent and stable pattern of response. This book uncovers these silent processes, highlighting how disasters have enabled new understandings of nature, state, and society.

A beautifully written and crafted book… Thirthankar Roy sheds important new light on a long-term reaction to famines, storms, and earthquakes.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
