The collapse of the weaving industry in eighteenth-century Bengal has been the subject of considerable controversy. While it has been held that the decline was caused by a stagnant system of production, historians have also argued that the problem was a symptom of colonialism, and lay in the fundamental conflict of interests between British investment in the Indian textile industry and the 'home' manufacturing groups. The present volume contributes fresh evidence and arguments to this subject.

The author was awarded justice Mohammad Ibrahim Gold Medal for the book as the book was adjudged the most outstanding work in the arts and humanities by the Asiatic Society of Bangladesh for years 1996-1998. Bangladesh is the last major nation-state to proclaim its identity. Here is a nation that changed its statehood twice in less than twenty-five years. The twists and turns of her recent history baffle the historians. This study explores the historical roots of this apparently enigmatic nation. Methodologically, it breaks new ground in Bangladesh studies in two ways.
