There had been some feeble attempts by various authors to portray the history of south India. This treatise is the first authenticated volume about the southern peninsular territory. Judging by the seriousness of the subject, the authors did not divulge the historical significance and yet tried to present it in a more lucid and entertaining style, which hold readers spellbound.

The history of the country is the biography of its great men which is reflected in this volume. In their own inimitable style, the authors have painted the ancient, medieval and modern period in an exemplary manner. Never for a movement the students feel that they are reading the text of exploring the south Indian Territory.
