This book deals with the agrarian salves of medieval Tamil country and how they formed the major labour force and basis for the agricultural production and held no share in the enjoyment of the wealth created and accumulated through their hard labour while the master-owners benefitted. It examines the ways in the which exploitation began at the grass root level and the impoverished conditions led to slavery in its manifold forms to continue down the later centuries. It highlights the social setting of the agrarian slaves in their economic behavior by reflecting upon the aspects of their daily life in history and society.
