The Congress in Tamilnad : Nationalist Politics in South India, 1919-1937 Hardback
by David Arnold
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: British in India series
Although primarily defined in cultural terms, as the land of the Tamil-speaking people, Tamilnad's geographical location in the south-eastern corner of the Indian sub-continent has enabled it to develop and maintain a distinctive character.
The story of the Congress in Tamilnad has two essential themes.
One is the evolution of the Tamil Congress as a regional political party.
The second is the changing relationship between a nationalist movement and a colonial regime.
Examining in close detail these themes, this book, first published in 1977, presents the story of the Congress in Tamilnad as a case-study of how nationalist parties evolved during the later stages of colonialism.
