Revenue Administration Of Rajasthan

The Present book entitled, “Revenue Administration of Rajasthan” (A Study of Eighteenth Century Marwar) has been revised form of my PhD. thesis. This work was presented as a thesis to the Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, in 2016, for award of ph.d. in history. The state of Marwar, presently known as “Jodhpur” was the largest state in Rajputana during the period under study. The term Marwar, originally comes from “Maroowar” or “Marubhumi” which supposed to mean “The Killing Land” due to its oceanic expanse of sparkling yellow sands dunes and barren rocks of the Aravalli range.
