Crime and Punishment in Ancient India
Crime and Punishment in Ancient India
Description
From the Jacket

This study is an attempt to focus attention on that aspect of society which arises out of disobedience of established norms and rules invoking widespread moral indignation, strain, stress and tension that calls for deterrents.

Geographically the study is chiefly confined to northern India while the main emphasis is on a specified time period of history.

The work is divided into six chapters. The first chapter deals with source materials and their respective values. The chapter on Crime offers a glimpse of various crimes prevalent during the period from petty breaches of laws to grave offences against society and state. The chapter on Punishment notes the nature and modes of punishment and remissions of punishment under prescribed conditions. The chapter on Police Organization deals with the various measures employed by police administration to detect, control and prevent crimes and the role of different officials in the hierarchy. The chapter on Judicial Administration is a survey of the factors involved in the intellectual procedure by which judges could arrive at decisions and various procedures adopted therefore. The concluding chapter discusses Sources of Hindu Law and notes that application and interpretation of law of subject to adjustment with cycles of time and political changes which determine the social attitude to crime-punishment forms and relations, though law remains unchanged in essence.

Testimonials

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!
Pablo, Germany
I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.

Frankly, I doubted. But today received my order. We were pleased with the packaging. Everything is packed carefully and accurately. Thank you very much, just a gift for the New Year!
