  • Description

    This book presents a Tamil translation of Kautilya’s Arthashastra.

    Summary of the Book

    In the Arthashastra, Kautilya discusses all the concepts which need to be understood by a ruler. He explains the concepts of statecraft, discussing how to plan a city, how to frame its hierarchy and on the social distinctions of class. He presents a discussion of warfare, strategies for success and a detailed discussion of how to organize an empire. His book has been studied and valued by rulers, generals and business strategists throughout history. This Tamil translation brings out the message of the original work, and showcases how Kautilya was poised to become of the greatest teachers of all time. Indeed, these were the very principles he taught a young boy who went on to become the great and powerful Chandragupta Maurya.

    About Chanakya

    Chanakya, alternately known as Kautilya and Vishnu Gupta, was an Indian philosopher, statesman, teacher and royal advisor. He was originally a professor of economics and political science at the ancient Takshashila University. He rose to prominence after bringing up a young boy history remembers as Chandragupta Maurya. Chanakya helped Chandragupta Maurya uproot the Nanda empire and form the Mauryan empire. Among his best known works is the Neetishastra, a book on morals and values.

    Just okay

    its a nice book.. one can have idea about how much chanakya cared about people and how much wise he was... but let me tell its not about chanakya.The book is all about policies and policies only... no history just a slight view of Chanakya's economics. But one can read it.. if he/she wants to have lil bit idea about policies made 2400tears back.

    Good Quality and Content

    The book supplies content on all economic, political, military, etc. topics from the point of view of Chanakya. It's understandable and very simply written, without any exaggeration. Plus, the style and feel of the book is awesome. It feels like a classic book and covers all important topics central to Chanakya's ideology. A good read for anyone interested.

    Kautilya's Arthashastra

    A revised edition Kautilya's Arthashastra a book which even holds relevance in today's modern times and probably will for the next 1000 years to come. A guidebook to how a state should be run which holds true even today and can be reviewed both for a monarchy as in the case of Kautilya or today for a democracy.

    Awesome- A must read for every youngster especially those preparing for civil services

    The book details on various types of taxation, international relations... what not, every dimension of administration has been discussed and its really surprising to find that the book holds relevance to this date even though it was written 2500years back
