Social History of the Tamils (1707-1947)
Social History of the Tamils (1707-1947)
Description

From the Back of the Book

Notwithstanding the prolificity of indepth researches in contemporary historiography, Professor Subramanian's book is the first concentrative effort to track down the social history of the Tamils.

Today, the Tamils, over fifty million of them, live in the South-eastern state of the Indian peninsula: Tamil Nadu- which indisputably represents the very nucleus of millennia-old Dravidian culture in India.

The book offers a compelling account of the Tamil's society, economy, religious beliefs, educational mechanism, arts and cultural expressions during the years 1707-1947- when, significantly, the British domination blossomed, bloomed, and faded; when new thoughts, new ideas, and new ways of life came as irresistibly into the homeland of the Tamils as into the Indian subcontinent. Thus retracing over two centuries of the British connection with India. The author here tries to show how the long colonial rule in India exposed the tradition-bound Tamilian society to Western influences- with results that proved incalculable in both their range and depth.

Social History of the Tamil: 1707-1947 is the outcome of Professor Subramanian's decade-long, painstaking research authenticated by an astonishing mass of evidence including archival records, Jesuit sources, Modi manuscripts, newspapers reports, biographies, travelogues, literary writings, and even fictional works,

About the Author

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
