History of the Dvaita School of Vedānta and Its Literature: From the Earliest Beginnings to Our Own Times
This study offers a panoramic view of the creative, expository, interpretive, dialectic, polemical, didactic and devotional phases of Dvaita philosophy, and its literature with a clear chronological setting of literary, historical and epigraphic materials. Written in lucid style it presents a vigorous and sparkling historical exposition of the mighty currents of Realistic Theism, originating in the Vedic and post-Vedic sources of Madhva philosophy finding their culmination in the Dvaita Vedanta of Madhvacarya, and the long line of his great commentators and followers, over a period of seven centuries from the thirteenth century onwards.

Undoubtedly the best book on Dvaita Philosophy, stating from its founder Madhva and his works, his early commentators, to Sri Jayatirtha, Sri Vyasaraya, Sri Vadiraja, Sri Raghavendra and others to name a few. He has given a brief introduction of all their works and highlighted their salient points. As all the original works of the system is in Sanskrit and that too in a scholarly style, it is difficult even a the Sanskrit beginners to comprehend these works in their original form.
The book is indeed a treasure house of information and is a must read for all students of Dvaita Philosophy. I can hardly think of an equivalent to this work in any other Indian system that has such an elaborate study done on its savants and literature. A great service indeed by a Great Teacher to Indian Philosophy.
