Since its publication in 1955, it has established itself as an outstanding work, among the earliest and best studies on South Indian history. The exhaustive narrative incorporates both the author's own researches as well as surveying the available material on the subject, tracing the political history, social life, commerce, religion, philosophy, literature, and arts of South India. Newly introduced by R Champakalakshmi, the book is certain to remain popular among specialist and lay readers alike. Printed Pages: 507 with numerous b/w illustrations. 027334

2 R. Champakalakshmi
Religion, Tradition, and Ideology: Pre-colonial South India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198070594 / 9780198070597; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The scholarship in this collection spans half a century of engagement with south India by one of its most prominent historians. The essays discuss the origins and development of multiple religious traditions and their role in the evolution of a rich and complex socio-religious matrix in pre-colonial South India. The emergence of the Brahmanical (Sanskritic) tradition as the dominant or mainstream tradition and the marginalization of the Sramanic religions—Jainism and Buddhism— has rarely been studied in the socio-economic and political context. R. Champakalakshmi debunks the oft-cited simple continuities between the Vedic times and the present day to show how conflicting, even irreconcilable beliefs and practices, were incorporated into the Sanskritic tradition, commonly referred to as Hinduism. Reflecting a lifetime of research the subject, this thematically united volume presents a nuanced understanding of different aspects of religions—their social base; their role in the evolution of regional and supra-regional states; and the development of religious communities. It highlights the role of the temple as an institution of integration, an ideological apparatus, and as a symbol of political authority. It also focuses on architecture and iconography as a metaphor for power and equation of king and god. Printed Pages: 663. 036591
