This monography on The Ali Rajas of Cannanore by Sri.K.K.N.

By delving deep into the original records and documents which had remained so far follow and unexplores, he has created a piece of history which is distinctly authentic and highly readable. He has also succeeded in shedding a lot of illumination on the twilight-area of the confrontation between the native rulers and the Western powers by focussing his researches on this unique.

Jews of Kerala
P.M. Jussay
Published in 2005
Price – 75/-
ISBN - 91-7748-091-X
The history of the spread of Jews and Judaism into Asia and the development of the Oriental Jewish diaspora is still shrouded in great obscurity. As far as India proper is concerned the Jews of Cranganore in Kerala have the oldest tradition. The first evidence of Jews in Kerala is the presence of three Hebrew Parsi signatures on a Copper plate granted to the Persian Christians of Quilon in the tenth century.
In the present volume Prof. Jussay has made an attempt to reconstruct the history of Kerala Jews based on his research and study of folk songs prevalent among the Cochin Jews before their migration to Israel. Though there are various attempts by eminent Jewish historians, including Prof. J.B.Segal, to reconstruct the past of Kerala Jews, Prof. Jussay’s attempt remains unique. He elicits direct information from the rich folk heritage of Kerala Jews accured over the years in the Kerala landscape.
