Back of the Book

‘Marathas and the Maratha Country’: under this general theme we have already published two books of Professor A. R. Kulkarni, namely (1) Maharashtra Society and Culture. We are now introducing his four books under the same series containing research articles based on original source and published in various journals. They are (i) The Marathas (1600-1818), a brief survey, (ii) Medieval Maratha Country, essays throwing fresh light on the various aspects of land and people of the region, (iii) Medieval Maharashtra containing essays on Village Communities, social relations, jiziya etc. and (iv) Studies in Maratha History which also includes articles of some other foreign and Indian scholars on Maratha historiography.



“Medieval Maratha Country” is a collection of fourteen research articles which were published by me in various research journals, and the proceedings of the conferences, seminars, and so on. They mainly deal with the various aspects of history, society and economy or Medieval Maharashtra. This can be treated as a supplementary volume to my earlier work ‘Medieval Maharashtra of the 17th and 18th Centuries.

I am grateful to Shri. Dattatraya Pashte, Proprietor of the Diamond Publication, Pune for undertaking the responsibility of this book.

I am extremely thankful to Dr. Radhika Seshan for hr help in correcting the proofs and preparing the index of this book.

I hope that the research scholars and students would find this book useful for their researches and studies of the Maharashtra, Society, Polity, Economy and Culture.
