The early medieval in South India by Kesavan Veluthat( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written over two decades, this distinctive collection explores - for the first time - the notion of 'early medieval' in south India. Presenting an alternative history of the deep south, Kesavan Veluthat re-examines the problems and patterns in the history of Tamilakam in general and early medieval Kerala and Karnataka in particular." "This interdisciplinary volume will be indispensable for teachers, students, and researchers of early medieval history, particularly of south India. It will also be useful for scholars of sociology, cultural studies, and religion."--Jacket
The political structure of early medieval South India by Kesavan Veluthat( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The buffalo century : Vāñcheśvara Dīkṣita's Mahiṣaśatakaṃ : a political satire for all centuries by Vāñchānātha( )

2 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Buffalo Century is a keen exploration into satire and its role in society and politics. Written in praise of a buffalo, Vāñcheśvara Dīkṣita's Mahiṣaśatakam is timeless in its treatment of power, and its subversion. In resurrecting the 18th century Tanjore for the modern reader, Veluthat lifts the poem beyond its immediate literary context and situates it in a contemporary global political setting. Presenting a modern English translation along with Sanskrit text, this work provides a fare that is as rich in double entendre as it is in its onomatopoeic metaphors. A literary triumph and the voice of an age, this book will be a key text for students and scholars of history, political science, sociology, literature, especially Sanskrit and comparative, and cultural studies"--

Présentation de l'éditeur : "Brought together here are ten essays, characterized by their dissent to the commonly accepted notions in the field, a first requirement for the growth of knowledge. Issues such as the dialectical process in the religious history of India; the much talked about Mauryan presence in south India; the contradictions in the construction of Kaliyuga in Puranic literature; political criticism in Sanskrit kavya poetry; regional identity and its varied perceptions; evolution of landlordism; emergence of castes and the use of 'Hindu' idioms in Christian worship and propaganda form the theme of these essays."

Making the Best of a Bad Bargain( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article rejoins the issues raised in Professor R.S. Sharma's landmark paper on references to Kaliyuga as indicating a major social crisis and shows that all was not as dark as has been represented in his writings. It shows that the same texts shows the other, brighter side of Kaliyuga and argues that even this is in an attempt to promote the ideology of the upper sections of society, where bhakti or devotion to a personalised god was found most successful
History and historiography in constituting a region: The case of Kerala( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The formation of regions is as complex a process as the formation of countries or nations. Geography has much to do with it in some cases, languages in others. But political events, commercial networks and tribal or caste dominance can also play their part. History, actual or imagined, may be invoked to create regional consciousness. This article examines how owing to complex factors Kerala came to be identified as a definite region by the sixteenth century, so identified not only by its mainstream tradition but also by people external to it
