The present Book is a compendium of scholarly contributions at the seminar held at South Delhi Campus in March 1988 on the Arthasastra of Kautilya. It covers a vide range of topies on the Kautilya's Arthasastra ranging from Economics, financial administration, taxation, Architecture, trade routes, system of spies and Agriculture etc. It also reveals the underlying thought-current of Kautilya on various social Institutions prevalent in his. times. All these authors have tried to look afresh on various social problems-which were welthought of by Kautilya and he tried to find out the solutions in his own way. He was, it seems, far ahead of his times. The present study will encourage and stimulate the scholars to explore this treasure-house of knowledge and to mould our modern day socio-political thinking in the wider and far-reaching interest of our nation. A comprehensive Introduction by Prof. Pushpendra Kumar is of an additional interest and helps in the understanding of Kautilya's magnitude and heights.Printed Pages: 300.
