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
