Kautilya's Arthasastra, the ancient Indian classic of governance, has been gaining increasing attention of Indologists all over the world, in recent years. It gives a mine of information regarding the actual practice of governance and outlines a picture of an ideal system of efficient administration. In the first chapter, Mr. Mannadiar introduces the treatise, indicates the themes of its fifteen adhikaranas and gives a profile of Kautilya about whom we have only scanty reliable information. He follows it up with a brief description of the society in which Kautilya lived. The rich material of the Book has been judiciously reorganised to present various topics in a compact form. The topics dealt with include the administrative hierarchy, conditions of service, penal practices, welfare measures and foreign policy. Kautilya gives detailed instructions regarding the organisation of an efficient network of spies. Even the most infamous Intelligence Agencies of the present world may find some useful hints to strengthen their department of dirty tricks. "Trust none" should be the motto of the ruler. Modern Management gurus find in Arthasastra many ideas which could be implemented in their organisations. Mr. Mannadiar devotes one full chapter to the theme. He has not failed to note the absence of concern with general education and public health. Kautilya's interest in environmentalism and social forestry should be an eye-opener to many contemporary ecologists. Mannadiar's occasional asides and comments connect the wily Brahmin's Insight to the present practice of public administration.
