Kautilya's Political Theory

Description Although the common belief is that the idea of a welfare state is a western concept, the fact is that its roots lie deep in Indian philosophy propounded by the ancient Indian's sages and saints. Kautilya, an ancient sage of India, has laid down the fundamentals of an ideal welfare state which aims at the all-round development material as well as spiritual, of the society as well as of the Individual. Kautilya's "Yogakshema", deals with all the facts of an ideal welfare state. The author's analysis and interpretation of Kautilya's philosophy is comprehensive, informative, scholarly and brilliant.[edit]
