About the Book
The present volume contains eighteen papers and an appendix presented in the National Seminar on "Governance in Ancient India', organised jointly by the Sanskrit Department of Mumbai University and Observer Research Foundation, Mumbai. The seminar was organised in December, 2010 to mark the centenary year of the discovery of Kautilya's Arthatśästra, a systematic treatise on Polity. Various sub, topics like Education. Statecraft, Judiciary, Legal Documents, Revenue. External Affairs, Internal Security and the like are dealt with in this volume. Right from the Vedic literature to the classical Sanskrit literature, references to good governance are scattered all over. Governance firmly founded on moral order is prescribed as the most ideal type by Ancient-Indian thinkers. Curious readers would certainly benefit from this volume, if they relate wisdom of the past to the contemporary issues.
