2 Noboru Karashima
Ancient to Medieval: South Indian Society in Transition
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0198063121 / 9780198063124; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
South India underwent a process of tremendous social change in the period between the twelfth to fourteenth centuries. This was characterized by transformation of landholding and production systems; emergence of new jâtis; development of maritime trade, merchant guilds, and towns; and birth of new religious ideas and beliefs. Mapping this shift from ‘ancient’ to ‘medieval’, this volume offers a new understanding of the emergence of medieval state and social formation in south India. Combining his fifty year experience of studying Tamil inscriptions with a nuanced historical rigour, Noboru Karashima rejects the ‘segmentary state’ model as a category for understanding the Chola state. He argues that the Chola kings tried to build a centralized state apparatus taking control of the East–West trade which in turn triggered widespread social change. The author examines Chinese ceramic shreds recently discovered in south India and also translates the description of the Chola state in Chinese dynastic annals to present a new picture of the south Indian state. The book also reviews debates surrounding land relations, caste, and commerce in south India and surveys the socio-political conditions leading to the establishment of the Vijayanagar rule.
