The increasing use of different methods of irrigation and the expanding cultivation of commercial crops came to play an important role in the laborious existence of the Panjab peasant.

Panjab, with its abundant artefacts and numerous traders, was not only drawn into a commercial bond with other regions of the Mughal empire, but was also influenced by major trends in the world economy. This book provides insights into the remarkably stratified society that was continually generating and adding new social sections.
