Kautilya’s Arthashastra: An Intellectual Portrait: The Classical Roots of Modern Politics in India

Subrata K. Mitra's Kautilya’s Arthashastra: An Intellectual Portrait: The Classical Roots of Modern Politics in India

‘Kautilya who?’ In India itself, Kautilya is mentioned for reasons that are more sentimental and nationalistic than analytical and Comparative with respect to the theoretical significance of his contributions to statecraft. In academic circles, Kautilya is labelled as the ‘Indian Machiavelli’, even though the Arthashastra was written some 1800 years prior to Machiavelli’s Discorsi and Principe and is much broader in scope.
This book brings the wisdom of Kautilya’s text—a tour de force in strategic thinking—to the present political discourse, emphasizing the relevance of this Ancient text to Contemporary World affairs. Brilliant scholarly analysis complemented with in-depth academic enquiry gives this Work an edge over all that has been written on Arthashastra so far. Mitra and Liebig move beyond romanticizing Kautilya and present to the reader one of the sharpest minds in history, unmatched in its knowledge of statecraft and a Theory unparalleled in strategic thinking.
A must-have guide to understanding both Kautilya and the intricacies of governance.
'कौटिल्य कौन?' भारत में ही, कौटिल्य का उल्लेख उन कारणों से किया गया है जो विश्लेषणात्मक और तुलनात्मक रूप से राज्यवादी में उनके योगदान के सैद्धांतिक महत्व के संबंध में अधिक भावनात्मक और राष्ट्रवादी हैं। अकादमिक सर्किलों में, कौटिल्य को 'इंडियन माचियावेली' के रूप में लेबल किया गया है, भले ही अर्थशास्त्र को माचियावेली की डिस्कोरी और प्रिंसिपी से कुछ 1800 साल पहले लिखा गया था और यह काफी व्यापक है।
यह पुस्तक रणनीतिक सोच में रणनीतिक सोच में एक दौरे डी बल का ज्ञान लाती है- वर्तमान राजनीतिक प्रवचन के लिए, इस प्राचीन पाठ की प्रासंगिकता को समकालीन विश्व मामलों में प्रासंगिकता पर जोर देती है। गहन अकादमिक जांच के साथ पूरक शानदार विद्वान विश्लेषण इस काम को अब तक अर्थशास्त्र पर लिखे गए सभी कार्यों पर बढ़त देता है। मित्रा और लिबिग कौटिल्य को रोमांटिक बनाने से आगे बढ़ते हैं और इतिहास में सबसे तेज दिमाग में से एक पाठक को प्रस्तुत करते हैं, जो राज्य के बारे में अपने ज्ञान में बेजोड़ है और सामरिक सोच में अद्वितीय सिद्धांत है।
कौटिल्य और शासन की जटिलताओं को समझने के लिए एक गाइड होना चाहिए।
