Political History of Modern Kerala
Political History of Modern Kerala
Description
About the Author

This book deals with a significant period in the Political History of Kerala. Besides the National freedom movements, there are several popular movements, with their focus on issues of local importance. Such movements in Travancore, Cochin and Malabar regions of Kerala is thoroughly discussed in the Political History of Modern Kerala.

- A. Sreedhara Menon

Born on December 18, 1925 at Ernakulam. Completed his M.A. Degree in History as a private candidate from the University of Madras with first rank in 1948. Went to Harvard University on a Fulbright Travel Grant and a Smith-Mundt Scholarship and secured masters degree in Political Science from there with specialisation in International Relations. Worked in various capacities such as professor of History, State Editor of the Kerala Gazetteers, Registrar of the University of Kerala and UGC visiting Professor in the University of Calicut. Held many other positions during his eventful career. Apart from compiling eight District Gazetteers of Kerala he was written more than 25 books in English and Malayalam.

Preface

In my A Survey of Kerala History published in 1967 the political movements in modern Kerala have been given only cursory treatment. It was felt that the subject should receive a little more attention in view of its topical interest. This monograph is the outcome of my efforts in this direction. As the inclusion of the revised material in A Survey of Kerala History would have disturbed the symmetry of the original text, it was decided to publish the same separately as a kind of supplement to the earlier book. I hope that the general reader and the student would find this book useful. - A . Sreedhara Menon

Prashanti, USA
Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter
Walter

Thanks to all the staff at Exotic Art for helping me acquire these wonderful books from the holy land of Bharata Varsha. Happy new year to you all and all glories to Sri Krsna, peace...
J. Idehen, UK
Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
