Economics in Arthasastra is an edited volume of about 20 articles dealing with the economic content of Arthasastra by Kautilya written more than two thousand years ago in India. This volume has been prepared with a specific objective to bring into limelight the fact that economics as a subject was evolved in India much earlier than the present western ideas on economic thinking. It will also explode the myth that quite a few western addicted persons feel that there is no proper economic content in Arthasastra. It is expected that this book will rekindle the motivation of the researchers to look back to the wonder that was India in order to press forward for an India shining in the near future. Let economic wisdom of the past guide the route to the economy of the years to come. 310 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 58800
