Narada, Brhaspati and Katyayana: A Comparative Study in Judicial Procedure, Madhukar M. Patkar
15 Narada, Brhaspati and Katyayana: A Comparative Study in Judicial Procedure

Madhukar M. Patkar

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1978, 81-215-0252-7 / 9788121502528, First Edition, Hardbound, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
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 justice." Dr. M.M. Patkar, the author of the present book has critically examined and analysed the Smrtis of Narada, Brhaspati and Katyayana and shown how J.D. Mayne is justified in his views. The three law-books under study not only present a systematic and factual aspect of the then prevailing civil and criminal law but they also contain advanced and, in some places, even radical views about rules of law and procedure. The late Dr. M.M. P.V. Kane described the three law-givers as a triumvirate in the realm of the ancient Hindu Law and procedure. The present work could, therefore, well be described as a fitting tribute to the contribution of the three law-givers in the field of ancient Hindu Law and procedure. Printed Pages: 194. 015118

Studies in Kautilya, M.V. Krishna Rao
24 Studies in Kautilya

M.V. Krishna Rao

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1979, 81-215-0242-X / 9788121502429, Third Revised Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
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 judicious selection of topics are the factors which bring into bold relief the various interesting aspects of the Arthasastra in a book of this small size.

Studies in the Dharmasastra of Manu, Nikunja Vihari Banerjee
25 Studies in the Dharmasastra of Manu

Nikunja Vihari Banerjee

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1980, 81-215-0218-7 / 9788121502184, First Edition, Hardcover, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
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. 000378

The Classical Law of India: trans. From French with additions by J. Duncan M. Derrett, Robert Lingat
26 The Classical Law of India: trans. From French with additions by J. Duncan M. Derrett

Robert Lingat

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1993, 81-215-0610-7 / 9788121506106, First Indian Edition, Hardbound, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
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 word dharma, which may be translated as "duty," in effect expresses conformity with what Hindus regard as the natural order of things; hence its association with law. The Brahmanical Codes, then, may not have constituted legislation in the usual sense, but they did influence the development of formal law in India. Accordingly, students of comparative law and of legal history will find much of interest in M. Lingat's lucid analysis of this ancient system. He begins with a survey of the literature relating to dharma in order to emphasize its extent and influence on Indian thought. Appraising the spirit in which the Codes were composed and charting their relationship to custom on the one hand and to the royal will on the other, M. Lingat demonstrates (by reference to the commentatorial literature of the ninth century and after) how custom was preserved and the king's order recognized without compromising the supremacy of the law. He studies the precepts in and through which the notion of dharma is expressed, and investigates how and to what extent the rule of dharma acquired the force of law. The discussion concludes with an overview of the evolution of the classical Indian legal system as it interacted with other legal systems both in India, first under Muslim and then under British rule, and also in the Buddhist countries of Southeast Asia. 026943

The Concept of Theft in Classical Hindu Law: An Analysis and the Idea of Punishment, Chanchal A. Bhattacharya
27 The Concept of Theft in Classical Hindu Law: An Analysis and the Idea of Punishment

Chanchal A. Bhattacharya

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1990, 81-215-0475-3, First Edition, Hardbound, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
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 codes. He then presents an extensive selection of relevant texts and commentaries which not only elucidate the context, but also underscore the genius of the commentary literature. In the last portion of the book, the author provides his own translation and interpretations, which should prove invaluable to scholars. In cases where notable conflicts of opinion exist, the author has annotated reasons for his preferences. Readers will also find that he has broken new ground. His boldness in dealing with the difficult task of handling Kautilya's text and its different translations and interpretations is especially noteworthy. This book should capture the scholarly imagination of anyone interested in the very fundamentals of Hindu jurisprudence. Printed Pages: 220. 027643

The Hindu Jajmani System: A Socio-economic System Interrelating Members of a Hindu Village Community in Services, William Henricks Wiser
28 The Hindu Jajmani System: A Socio-economic System Interrelating Members of a Hindu Village Community in Services

William Henricks Wiser

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1988, 81-215-0053-2 / 9788121500531, Third Edition, Hardcover, New, 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
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 through industrialization has dealt a crushing blow to the Jajmani system. Growth of cities, migration of rural labour, mechanization of agriculture, etc., have made Jajmani system irrelevant today in the Indian village. Yet traces of the system continue to linger. It is an important book for those engaged in the study of village economics and role of caste in it. Economic historians will find it a valuable sourcebook. Printed Pages: 158. 033270

The Joint Hindu Family: Its evolution as a legal Institution, Gunther-Dietz Sontheimer
30 The Joint Hindu Family: Its evolution as a legal Institution

Gunther-Dietz Sontheimer

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1977, 81-215-0270-5 / 9788121502702, First Edition, Hardbound, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
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 advances a plea for and does not preclude a joint effort of various disciplines like history, law, sociology, and psychology etc. to assess an institution which is responsible for much which is characteristically Indian.
