 DESCRIPTION
spacer

This book presents an incisive analysis of social formations in present-day Tamil Nadu and Kerala from pre-historic times to early medieval period. It examines the economy, technology, and the process of state formation to understand the transformation from agro-pastoral to agrarian social formation.

The volume specially focuses on the transition from clan and lineage to hereditary occupations of caste, and the social implications of the spread of writing. It also discusses the structural and institutional features of the new social formation. The Introduction provides a conceptual backdrop to the term 'social formation' and reviews the major debates surrounding social change in south India.
