Dhanasastra cintayute caritram, published by Kerala Bhasha Institute. From the Chicago Public Library.
ധനശാസ്ത്ര ചിന്തയുടെ ചരിത്രം Dhanasastra Cintayute Caritram, by P R Gopinathan Nair.
I couldn’t find too much information on this book, but Google translates the title as “The rankings of thought in history”. Based on my search, PR Gopinathan Nair appears to have written over a dozen other books on education policy and economic development.
This is such a great example of the extremely condensed, squarish forms that often grace covers of Malayalam books. These are among the most condensed I’ve seen!
