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.

All always packed with care, delivered in a timely, no hassle fashion. Your business is very trustworthy and I am so glad to have when I need to look for something.
Prashanti, USA
Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Thanks to all the staff at Exotic Art for helping me acquire these wonderful books from the holy land of Bharata Varsha. Happy new year to you all and all glories to Sri Krsna, peace...

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
