This book studies two relatively unknown phases of urbanization in South India in the early historical (300 BC - AD 300) and the early medieval (AD 600-1300) periods. The author analyses the reasons for urbanization not merely in terms of the economy and demography but also Cola imperialism and the bhakt ideology in this process.
