Recent Trends in the Business History of India

Prof Chinmay Tumbe of IIMA writes this nice encouraging short paper on Indian business history:

The past decade has seen a resurgence of interest in understanding Indian business history. A number of business history books have been published in the academic and nonacademic press. Special issues on India have appeared in leading field journals, more management schools in India and outside are engaging with the field, internship and fellowship opportunities have been initiated, and business archives have sprung up. This article documents these recent trends, examines the emerging scholarship, and identifies gaps that need to be addressed in the future.

A lot of this recent initiative has come from the author himself!
