The focus of this special edition is on Indian business within its wider global context. Indian business was not immune to influences from the wider world. There is a considerable body of literature that establishes the history of the global interconnectedness of the Indian economy in the 18th and 19th centuries. This special edition of Business History seeks to build on this body of work to locate the development of Indian business in the wider world economy, the practices that have grown from this relationship of exchange and the transfer of knowledge, know-how and competences.
