This study examines Maratha military culture through a battle-by-battle analysis of the campaigns. Randolf Cooper challenges the ethnocentric assumptions that associate Western political ascendancy with The Military Revolution and argues that the real contest for India was the struggle to control the South Asian military economy, rather than a single decisive military battle.
