Out of print for more than 15 years, this book still represents the most systematic attempt to trace the profound social change that over took Kerala from the middle of the nineteenth century. It is not a study of Nairs alone but a social and political history of one of India`s most fascinatig areas during a time of rapid change. It is essential reading for any one interested in the fate of matrilineal societies in the modern world or the background of Kerala`s flourishing Communist Party in the 1940s and 1950s.
