The theme of this volume which is being reissued completely revised and enlarged, is the universality or otherwise of the concept of feudalism. Here we have a significant collection of essays by T.J. Byres and by a distinguished group of historians in response to an article by Harbans Mukhia on `Was There Feudalism in Indian History?` This book gathers together a diversity of opinion (based on careful historical scholarship and with due regard for the relevant theoretical formulations) on a range of non-Western countries, from which exciting comparative perspectives emerge. It is likely to become a landmark in an important and controversial area.
