Abstract

An attempt is made in this paper to examine the interplay of caste and class forces in Kerala. The present level of economic attainments among the major social groups is compared with the corresponding level three or four decades earlier in order to see if the contemporary caste-class relation is any different from that of the past. The author examines, in this context, some aspects of the distribution of land-holdings and of educational and employment opportunities among the major social groups.
