Development of Indian Trading Community in Astrakhan in Context of Russian-Indian Relationship (1725–1800)
Languages of publication
The contribution is devoted to qualitative and quantitative changes brought about by the 18th century in ongoing efforts of the Russian government circles to establish a direct contact with India, develop the Russian-Indian trade, and the role Indian trading communities had in the goods exchange between India and Russia. The study sets the mutual dependence of both phenomena in a direct context, and tries to show a cause of failure of the Russian side’s effort, which had also partially affected prosperity and change of the Indian trading community in Astrakhan.
