About this Item

The book Kalinga under the Eastern Gangas (Ca. 900 A.D. to 1200 A.D.) is an exceptional work as it concentrates on a very detailed study of various aspects of the administrative set up of the Ganga state. His work begins with a comprehensive outline of the political history of the Eastern Gangas which is followed by a detailed survey of the general set up of the administrative machinery of the State. This descriptive chapter contains a thorough study of the subject. An interesting new contribution to this subject is the discovery of Rajavidya and Gangavidya as salient features of the Ganga kingship. The author analyses with great care the `nayankara system` which later on became very important in the Vijayanagara administrative set up of the Empire. The author rightly points out that this system might have originated in Kalinga and its neighbouring regions. The most important and perhaps also the most ingenious part of the book is the extensive study on the administrative divisions in chapter 6 the Krada vishaya or pampu in chapter 7 and the vishayas in their historical perspective in chapter 8. Of particular value are, therefore, the detailed lists and respective maps in chapter 8 about twelve vishayas in Kalinga. The last two major chapters deal with the economic and socio - religious conditions under the Ganga dynasty. Of particular interest is the section on land tenures with a detailed study on the Kara and Akara grants which provides new insight into the agrarian relations of Kalinga. The work concludes with a comprehensive chapter on "Summary and conclusion". Contents:- Foreword Abbreviations Glossary 1. Introduction 2. Political History of the Eastern Gangas : A Brief Outline 3.
