Mysore History(Christa Shaka 1800 Ra Modalina Mysooru ithihaasa)
Mysore History before 1800 CE is about the life and work of Prof. D S Achuta Rao. His research on Mysore history is represented by ten indexed articles he published during 1940-65. He actively popularized India’s history and its glorious past. Three such articles are included as they present initiatives in Indian History by the Maharajas College History Society, Colonial Researchers on India and Mysore Government’s initiative in a Kannada Encyclopedia. In his biography in the second part, his students and children have written about his life as a teacher and father, providing a context of his period. The book presents an interesting window to history research in the middle of last century.
