Description

This work presents, in a compact form, a comprehensive account of the history of the whole of South India from Prehistoric Times to the Fall of Vijayanagar.

With a new introduction, this edition incorporates the results of author's own researches, and brings together material previously scattered in many separate studies and presents it as a coherent narrative. Political history naturally occupies a predominant place, but full account is taken of social life, commerce, religion, philosophy, literature and the plastic arts; these subjects are treated both in the course of the historical narrative and in four separate chapters at the end of the book.

In her introduction, Professor Champakalakshmi brings this classic history up to date.
