Description
About the Book

In India the education system, both at the Community level and College level, is such that the picture of society is presented upside down before the young minds, very often ideas, ideologies and leading personalities are portrayed as the motive forces of history. Even long after Independence, the myth of a spiritual civilization is being propagated by the ruling classes to falsify the perception of causualrelations in the present and the past.

The historian of India, whether he is working in A.P. or Karnataka, Punjab or W.B. has a herculean task. The author touched upon the problem of India feudalism with reference to South India to illustrate the complexities of interpretation faced by the historians of the present generations of India.

The book has 24 chapters on various aspects of South India. The book may not only provide reference but also serve as guide. The historians, teachers, and scholars fined this book indispensible.

We are thankful to Dr. M.G.S. Narayanan, Former Head, Deptt. of History, Calicut University, Calicut and Ex. Secretary, I.C.H.R., New Delhi for giving the valuable book for publication.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
