"This book provides a detailed source of reference for the main trends in the history of Sri Lanka from prehistoric times to the present. Tracing the origins of the main races and aspects of its South Indian background, it gives a short account of the physical nature of the island and discusses the origins of its names. Also, it extends elaborate discussion on the important facets of ancient Sinhalese administration, social structure, everyday life and culture in early times. Brief accounts of Sinhalese and Tamil kings under each historical period up to sixteenth century find place in the discussion as well."--Publisher.
