Colonialism in Defence : State and Economy in Princely Cochin

"This book is designed to fill an important gap in the economic history of erstwhile Cochin State. The book titled `Colonialism in Defence: State and Economy in Princely Cochin' attempts to study the warp and woof of the economy of the erstwhile Cochin State from 1919 to 1947. The period under consideration is quite vital as it formed a State of transition in the economic history of Cochin. The measures initiated by the State to cope with the Great Depression as well as its development policies in the wake of the imperial restrictions are examined in this work. The State's economy was totally out of gear when Cochin became a tributary of the English East India Company.

World-wide economic depression had its repercussion in the State of Cochin too. The geographical location has made the State a commercially important point. The British rule integrated Cochin with international trade. In retrospect, it can be suggested that the period under consideration experienced creative change in the warp and woof of the economy of the Cochin State. The State failed in fully exploiting the congenial atmosphere for economic activities during the inter-war era, and it thus presented a case of modernization begun but nor completed."
