BibliographyAbout The Book:- Ancient Indian Polity Has Always Been An Interesting And Rewarding Subject Of Study. Contrary To The View Of The Western Orientalists That Ancient India Produced Only Philosophers And Mystics To Utter Neglect Of All Secular Aspects Of Life Which State Of Affair Resulted In Repeated Subjugation Of The Nation By Foreigners, It Has Been Proved By Indian Scholars, Once And Again, That Indians Were Not Backward In Materiat Sciences And Political Thought And Statecraft.

He Has Also Tried To Discover The Present Value Of Ancient Ideals Of India With A View To Formulating The Basis Of The Polity Of The Future.
