1 Thomas R. Trautmann (Author) & Gurcharan Das (Intro.)
Arthashastra: The Science of Wealth (The Story of Indian Business)
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 0143426184 / 9780143426189; Softcover; New; 
Trautmann's analysis and rendering of Arthashashtra is a unique exercise' - Business Standard This book is a definitive introduction to the classic text, the Arthashastra, the world's first manual on political economy. The 2000-year-old treatise is ascribed to Kautilya, the prime minister of King Chandragupta Maurya, and is as important to Indian thought as Machiavelli?s The Prince is to Europe. Arthashastra, or 'the science of wealth', is a study of economic enterprise, and advises the king-entrepreneur on how to create prosperity. Thomas Trautmann?s exploration of this seminal work illuminates its underlying economic philosophy and provides invaluable lessons for the modern age. Printed Pages: 206. 107406

2 Thomas R. Trautmann
Languages and Nations: The Dravidian Proof in Colonial Madras
Yoda Press; New Delhi, India; 8190363409 / 9788190363402; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
British rule of India brought together two very different traditions of scholarship on language, producing several intellectual breakthroughs of lasting value. Two of these breakthroughs were especially important: the conceptualisation of the Indo-European language family by Sir William Jones at Calcutta in 1786 - proposing that Sanskrit is related to Persian and languages of Europe - and the conceptualisation of the Dravidian language family of South India by F.W. Ellis at Madras in 1816 - the ""Dravidian proof,"" showing that the languages of South India are related to one another but are not derived from Sanskrit. These concepts are still valid centuries later. In this book, Thomas R. Trautmann continues the examination he began in Aryans and British India (1997). Whereas the previous book focused on Calcutta and Jones, the current volume examines these developments from the vantage of Madras, focusing on Ellis, Collector of Madras, and the Indian scholars with whom he worked at the College of Fort St. George. Making use of the rich colonial record, Trautmann concludes by showing how elements of the Indian anlyses of language have been folded into historical linguistics and continue in the present as unseen but nevertheless living elements of modern history.

3 Thomas R. Trautmann (ed.)
The Aryan Debate
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0195692004 / 9780195692006; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Did the Sanskrit-speaking Aryans enter India from Iran or Central Asia, or were they indigenous to India and authors of the Indus Civilization? This question is central to the debate that has informed Indian history writing, and has been strongly contested in public discussions for over a decade. This volume brings together a selection of significant writings since the eighteenth century to illustrate the historical development of the Aryan debate. In a lucid introduction, Trautmann examines three groundbreaking discoveries that led to the debate: the discovery of the Indo-European language family, and the discovery of the Indus Civilization. He has also classified the readings included in this volume along two basic issues-- the relation of the Aryans or Indo-Europeans to the Dravidians, and the relation of the Veda to the Indus Civilization. This selection includes writings by William Jones, who was among the first to articulate the idea of the Indo-European language family, an d by well-known archaeologists, historians, and modern interrogators such as Romila Thapar, Shereen Ratnagar, M B Emeneau, M A Mehendale, and Trautmann himself. Trautmann describes the opposing interpretations in their political context, demonstrating clearly why the Aryan debate is so highly charged and contentious. The collection highlights the successful conjunction of archaeology, historiography, and philology in what forms one of the most controversial issues in the Indian public domain. This book is important for teachers and students of ancient Indian history, archaeology, linguistics, and sociology. Due to the prominence of this debate in the public sphere, the volume will also interest journalists, anthropologists, and the informed general audience. Printed Pages: 333. 021546
