Abstract
This paper aims at revealing the connection between the rise of Indian economic nationalism in British India and the formation of international economic order of Asia at the turn of the XIX—XX centuries, mainly focusing on the activities and views of prominent early Indian nationalists of moderate faction, like Dadabhai Naoroji, and the economic activities of Indian merchants to accelerate Indian overseas trade. I interpret the activities of early Indian nationalists as ‘collaborators’ to the British Raj. The presence of ‘collaborators’ was essential for British rule in India, especially at the end of the 19th century, when the rising tide of Indian economic nationalism emerged. The management and control of ‘collaborators’ by the Government of India is closely related to “Art of Governance”, and this paper tries to analyze the interaction between the British Raj and the Indian economic nationalists from new perspectives of ‘collaboration’ and ‘autonomy’. The main actors of ‘collaboration’ are a prominent Indian merchant in Bombay, the Tata family, and the largest Japanese shipping company in Meiji-period, the Nippon Yusen Kaisha (N.Y.K.) for the export of Indian raw cotton to Japan and China.
