This book of Professor Banerjee is an attempt to present Manusmriti as an outstanding sociological work of ancient India with an unusually comprehensive outlook and to evaluate its impact on the organization of the Hindu society. Although Manu has been succeeded by a number of sociologists such as Narada, Brihaspati and others, who have made valuable contributions to the development of sociological thinking in India, his influence upon the organization of the Hindu society persists till this day. On this account and also on account of the absence of any effective dynamic to initiate the process of wholesome change in the social milieu, the Hindu society, as Professor Banerjee has tried to show, has been suffering from the evil of stagnation till this day. This circumstance calls for the ways and means which can break through the state of stagnation and being about social progress among the Hindus. This is, then, a book which is bound to be of interest to the students of sociology, law, the history of ancient India and the history of Sanskrit literature. It is likely to be of special use to those who are actively engaged in social work. Printed Pages: 122.
