This work is mainly based on an analysis of primary sources, such as Manu Smrti, Yajnavalkya Smrti, and glosses ascribed to commentators, such as Kulluka, Medhatithi, Vijnanesvara, and others. The author has scrupulously referred to the established scholarly material in this field, and has created a lively debate, accepting or rejecting any given rendition or point of view. This study should contribute significantly to our knowledge of the Hindu's sense of moral obligation to justice. Chanchal Bhattacharya sets out by analyzing the concept of theft and punishment in the classical Hindu law cod... View more info

The "laying at rest" of the joint Hindu family is said to have been initiated at least from the point of law and its disappearance in society has frequently been forecast by sociologists and by public opinion. Now that the controversy between protagonists and reformers seems to have been subsided it may be the right time for re-examining without bias and prejudice an institution which has often been misunderstood and misinterpreted. The present study traces the outlines of the evolution of this institution questioning some assumptions regarding its history, nature and function. It adva... View more info

Studies in Kautilya

Dr. M.V. Krishna Rao's Studies in Kautilya is an objective and thorough examination of Kautilya's Arthasastra from the standpoint of his own age and society. Kautilya and Aristotle are found to have many identical views, which are opposed to Machiavelli's. Kautilya abhorred petty principalities and advocated a strong empire based on righteousness. The emergence of the Mauryan Empire, which comprises practically the whole of the Indian sub-continent, attests to the genius of Kautilya as a political theorist and practical statesman. Strict economy of expression, adherence to discussion and judic... View more info

Scholars like Sir Henry Maine believed that the codes of Manu and others were in great part an ideal picture of that, which in views of the Brahmins ought to be the law. On the other hand, J.D. Mayne while refurling the view of Sir Henry Maine says that "the Smrtis were partly based upon contemporary and anterior usage and, in part, on rules framed by the Hindu Jurists and rules of the country. Smrtis and Digests were not private books but were recognized authorities in the courts and tribunals of the country and that the Smrti rules were concerned with the practical administration of just...

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 proces... View more info

For many centuries the Hindu population of the Indian subcontinent has largely observed a legal system derived from the Dharmasastra, or "science of righteousness," the indigenous holy law of the land. This legal system, the oldest in existence, is superior in depth and diversity even to Roman law; yet its development has been shaped neither by formal legislation nor by judicial precedent but instead by unique religious concepts that, prescribing rules of conduct to be observed in accordance with one's station in society, gradually acquired the force of law.

The Hindu Jajmani System was first published in 1936. To this day it remains the most standard and only work which deals with the Jajmani system. It defines the role of the caste in the economic life of a village community. The author describes the functions assigned by Manu to various castes and how these caste groups interact with each other in the production of goods and services needed by the village community and they try at the same time to function within the framework fixed by Manu despite the social, economic and political changes during centuries. The impact of economic development t... View more info
