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

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
