About this Item: Asian Agri-History Foundation, 2008. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. The book of verse titled Krishi Gita, written in four parts by an anonymous author (s) in ?old?

Also included are aspects relating to agricultural water management, tillage operations (including the implements used), and animal husbandry (e.g., how to select a bullock pair for draught purposes, and where in the farm to construct a cattle shed).

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 1968. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Kerela-nestling between the foamy coastline of the Arabian Sea and the tall mountain ranges of the Western Ghats-has in her population people of various grades of civilisation, from the most primitive to the most highly advanced, and is of peculiar interest to students of anthropology. In this monograph, the first of a five-volume series entitled Social History of Kerela, L.A. Krishna Iyer deals with its earliest inhabitants-the hill tribes who have been classified as Pre-Dravidians, and whose population now is well over two lakhs. He provides a lot of material on their geographical environment, traditions of origin, occupation and modes of livelihood, racial affinities, economic conditions, dietary, dress, and other aspects of material culture; compares the results of his serological work with those of other anthropologists; and discusses such important questions as the occurrence of a Negrito strain among some of the tribes, the effect of contact with other peoples, and population growth. Marriage and the family, social and cultural structures, religion and mythology, taboos and exogamy are all described vividly, and amplified by comparisons and evaluations. The author, who has been connected with anthropological work in the State for long, has studied the aboriginals with sympathy and acre, and writes with deep knowledge and scientific accuracy. The book is the fruit of many years of study, and should interest not only students of anthropology, but also intelligent lay readers, for it presents material essential for an understanding of the life of the primitive folk of Kerela.

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 1970. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This Monograph, The Dravidians, is the second of a five-volume sub-series entitled Social History of Kerela in the MONOGRAPHS ON MAN IN INDIA Series which will bring to specialists and amateurs the results of modern anthropological research in India. Important among Kerela`s Dravidian castes are the Nayars, Izhavas, Mukkuvans, Vellalas, and Kammalars. The author deals with their migration to the State, and the problem of spread of culture from Kerela across the seas over the world. A vast field is covered-there is a discussion on how the early peopling of Kerela brought about a superior fraternity, vitality, and cultural growth. A wealth of detail is provided in regard to marriage institutions, inheritance, kinship and social organisation, disposal of the dead, religious customs, etc. Other topics discussed include the riddle of the growth of population, and the impact of modernism on the economic, social, and cultural progress of the State.

About this Item: B.R. Publishing Corporation, Delhi, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. In the history of mathematics, the invention of calculus and `the passage to infinity` are seen as major benchmarks in the creation of modern or advanced mathematics. A principal focus of this volume is tracing the beginnings of modern mathematics to India, notably Kerala, and how these ideas and techniques may have been transmitted to Europe. If such transmission proves to be significant, it would help to deconstruct the prevailing Eurocentric account of the development of modem mathematics. To that end invitations were extended to a group of distinguished historians, mathematicians, educators, linguists, philosophers and others to make presentations at a two-day Workshop held in Trivandrum. And this is reflected in the breadth and depth of the papers presented in this volume. Contents Introduction I. The Kerala School of Mathematics and Astronomy : The Social and Historical Contexts : 1. Infinite Series Across three Cultures : Background and Motivation - A Brief Survey/George Gheverghese Joseph 2. Indian Mathematical Tradition : The Kerala Dimension/V.

About this Item: Pragati Publication, 2007. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This book consists of nineteen articles by Mr. V.K.R. Menon written between 1928 and 1943. They include scholarly pieces as well as brief introductions, notes, reviews and comments on a variety of themes such as old Malayalam, art, architecture, music theory and paintings, epigraphical transcripts, granthavari-s and Ayurvedic treatment against snake poison. The principal merit of the articles is their thematic relationship to medieval and early modern history and culture. Though written long ago, the undated nature of their themes makes them relevant to relatively longer periods.

About this Item: Pragati Publication, 2007. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This book consists of nineteen articles by Mr. V.K.R. Menon written between 1928 and 1943. They include scholarly pieces as well as brief introductions, notes, reviews and comments on a variety of themes such as old Malayalam, art, architecture, music theory and paintings, epigraphical transcripts, granthavari-s and Ayurvedic treatment against snake poison. The principal merit of the articles is their thematic relationship to medieval and early modern history and culture. Though written long ago, the undated nature of their themes makes them relevant to relatively longer periods. Articles dealing with specialised and technical subjects like architecture, music theory and health care belonging to the traditional wisdom contribute to the history of indigenous knowledge system.

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 1968. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Kerela-nestling between the foamy coastline of the Arabian Sea and the tall mountain ranges of the Western Ghats-has in her population people of various grades of civilisation, from the most primitive to the most highly advanced, and is of peculiar interest to students of anthropology. In this monograph, the first of a five-volume series entitled Social History of Kerela, L.A. Krishna Iyer deals with its earliest inhabitants-the hill tribes who have been classified as Pre-Dravidians, and whose population now is well over two lakhs. He provides a lot of material on their geographical environment, traditions of origin, occupation and modes of livelihood, racial affinities, economic conditions, dietary, dress, and other aspects of material culture; compares the results of his serological work with those of other anthropologists; and discusses such important questions as the occurrence of a Negrito strain among some of the tribes, the effect of contact with other peoples, and population growth. Marriage and the family, social and cultural structures, religion and mythology, taboos and exogamy are all described vividly, and amplified by comparisons and evaluations. The author, who has been connected with anthropological work in the State for long, has studied the aboriginals with sympathy and acre, and writes with deep knowledge and scientific accuracy. The book is the fruit of many years of study, and should interest not only students of anthropology, but also intelligent lay readers, for it presents material essential for an understanding of the life of the primitive folk of Kerela.

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 1970. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This Monograph, The Dravidians, is the second of a five-volume sub-series entitled Social History of Kerela in the MONOGRAPHS ON MAN IN INDIA Series which will bring to specialists and amateurs the results of modern anthropological research in India. Important among Kerela`s Dravidian castes are the Nayars, Izhavas, Mukkuvans, Vellalas, and Kammalars.

A vast field is covered-there is a discussion on how the early peopling of Kerela brought about a superior fraternity, vitality, and cultural growth. A wealth of detail is provided in regard to marriage institutions, inheritance, kinship and social organisation, disposal of the dead, religious customs, etc. Other topics discussed include the riddle of the growth of population, and the impact of modernism on the economic, social, and cultural progress of the State.

About this Item: B.R. Publishing Corporation, Delhi, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. In the history of mathematics, the invention of calculus and `the passage to infinity` are seen as major benchmarks in the creation of modern or advanced mathematics. A principal focus of this volume is tracing the beginnings of modern mathematics to India, notably Kerala, and how these ideas and techniques may have been transmitted to Europe. If such transmission proves to be significant, it would help to deconstruct the prevailing Eurocentric account of the development of modem mathematics. To that end invitations were extended to a group of distinguished historians, mathematicians, educators, linguists, philosophers and others to make presentations at a two-day Workshop held in Trivandrum. And this is reflected in the breadth and depth of the papers presented in this volume. Contents Introduction I.

About this Item: Permanent Black, 2017. Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Why did autobiographical writings emerge in Kerala more than a century ago? What were the social, material, and cultural features that motivated individuals to write personal histories and memoirs? This book shows the complex ways in which private recollections, and the use of memory for loosely literary ends, also entailed the production of history by another name. Udaya Kumar analyses this period of social transformation to show the emergence of new resources for the self-relective writer, as well as of new idioms of expression. Among the many genres and forms he studies are anti-caste writings, works advocating spiritual and social reorientation, monologic poetry, and early novels in Malayalam. Sree Narayana Gurus thought, the portrayal of women and desire in Kumaran Asans poetry, and the fictional worlds created by major novelists of this period (such as O. Chandu Menon and C.V. Raman Pillai), says Udaya Kumar, excited fresh appraisals of morality, personal emotions, and shared pasts. The envisioning of caste reform, the recording of historical change, and the creation of political identities, he shows, are often inextricable aspects of new literary practices. Using Keralas cultural history as his entry point, Udaya Kumar has written an uncommonly inspirational book of ideas about the relationship of literature to history, on literature asin a sensehistory in person.
