Arthashastra, the Ancient Indian Economics - June 1st, 2016

The Arthashastra is an ancient Indian treatise on statecraft, economic policy and military strategy, written in Sanskrit.Likely to be the work of several authors over centuries,Kautilya, also identified as Vishnugupta and Chanakya, is traditionally credited as the author of the text. The latter was a scholar at Takshashila, the teacher and guardian of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya.However, scholars have questioned this identification.

Composed, expanded and redacted between 2nd century BCE and 3rd century CE,the Arthashastra was influential until the 12th century, when it disappeared. It was rediscovered in 1904 by R. Shamasastry, who published it in 1909.The first English translation was published in 1915.

The title "Arthashastra" is often translated to "the science of politics",but the book Arthashastra has a broader scope.It includes books on the nature of government, law, civil and criminal court systems, ethics, economics, markets and trade, the methods for screening ministers, diplomacy, theories on war, nature of peace, and the duties and obligations of a king.The text incorporates Hindu philosophy,includes ancient economic and cultural details on agriculture, mineralogy, mining and metals, animal husbandry, medicine, forests and wildlife.
