In this book Singh offers a critique of the dominant western legal theory--legal positivism--based on concepts that are fundamental to the Indian dharmasastra tradition of legal thought, a tradition which had a continuous 2,000-year history before European ideas gained currency. In so doing, he offers an Indian restatement of the nature of law, and outlines a new theory of law based on a critique of Kant and Leibniz.
