Description: In this book attempts have been made to highlight the manifold manifestations of urbanisation in the past – a totally new field of ancient Indian studies. Answers have been sought for such questions as: What was the class structure of urbanism?; What was the cultural milieu of different urban social groups?; How did the emerging patterns of successive periods affect urban administration?. The origin as well as the decline of towns has been fully discussed. The phase of de-urbanisation in the Gupta and post-Gupta times points to the emerging feudal formation.
