SUMMARY

This collection of essays in honor of Noboru Karashima, whose vast research has uncovered much of the history of the Pallava-Cola and Vijayanagara eras in south Indian history, a period that spans the eighth to the sixteenth centuries. The essays address the emergence of rural and urban societies and state systems in the region and demonstrate the richness of contemporary research, particularly that based on the study of pre-colonial south Indian temple inscriptions. Topics include the extension of settled cultivation, the role of brahmadeya communities, the Kancipuram and Cidambaram ritual centers, kinship, feminism, and the Vijayanagara nayaka networks. The final chapter, on the initial Indian communities that were in contact with southeast Asia, offers a contrast between the evolving and functional rols of south Indian and Javanese temple centers.Structure and Society in Early South India: Essays in Honour of Noboru Karashima, was published 2001 under ISBN 9780195651508 and ISBN 0195651502.
