    How did the Tamil merchant become India's first link to the outside world? The tale of the Tamil merchant is a fascinating story of the adventure of commerce in the ancient and early medieval periods in India. The early medieval period saw an economic structure dominated by the rise of powerful Tamil empires under the Pallava and Chola dynasties. This book marks the many significant ways in which the Tamil merchants impacted the political and economic development of south India.

    Wonderful book

    A very readable work accessible to the layman on the spread of commerce and business in Ancient south India. Gives insight into the spread of Indian culture and thought to South Asia and beyond.

    This is from a series of books on Indian business and commerce from ancient times to the present by Penguin edited by Gurucharan Das.

    "How did the Tamil Merchant become India's first link to the outside world?"

    Super fast shipping: I ordered this book yesterday and got it today!

    A very well researched and readable book, recommended for anyone who wants to know facts about south India that really should be in school history textbooks.

    Boring

    The book is like a history text book. I wish the book provided profound inputs, on the history of tamilakam and its trade partners. Most of what is contained in the book is common knowledge to any south indian. The writer lacks the ability to hold the reader interested in the topics covered. Many topics are repeated over and over. People doing a PhD on Tamil Merchants can buy the book, just so that it can act as a reference.
