A comprehensive and complete survey of the history of Kerala from Neolithic to the present day.
The archaeological and historical records are not overly discussed in detail, with the writer preferring the narrative nature of history rather than being too pedantic. This is an easy and quite interesting read for history enthusiasts. Admittedly it doesn't go into too much detail given that it covers three millennia of history. This gave the feeling of judging history from the 20th century standpoint which I feel isn't the right way to judge our past. I'd definitely recommend the book to both the casual reader and history enthusiasts alike.

Being a Malayali, I chose to read this book in its original version in Malayalam. The book is vast in its coverage of the state's known history, but even by the author's candid admission, it only scratches the surface.
For me, it was very revelatory as it, to a great extent, satiated my desire to know about how my home state evolved. The chapters are presented more or less in chronological order and Sreedhara Menon also gives adequate coverage to Kerala's contribution to arts and literature as w Being a Malayali, I chose to read this book in its original version in Malayalam.
The chapters are presented more or less in chronological order and Sreedhara Menon also gives adequate coverage to Kerala's contribution to arts and literature as well as its relative ascent from a deeply casteist society to a more egalitarian one today. I would recommend this to every Malayali who loves to read and would like to appreciate our rich heritage. I would also like to think that any non-Malayali who is genuinely eager to know about Kerala's history as it's got a strong umbilical connection to that of the rest of India, read the English version.
An interesting takeaway from the book - Buddhism and Jainism were prevalent in Kerala until about the 11th century when Hinduism, as we know it today, took over and and literally displaced them, so much so that several of the popular Hindu shrines today used to be either Buddhist or Jain centres of worship.
I had even gone to some of them in the past without actually knowing this. Jun 24, Midhun Jose rated it it was amazing Shelves: history , malayalam. Dec 29, Lachu rated it it was amazing.
