Patrick Olivelle, Donald Richard Davis
Oxford University Press, 2018 - Hindu law - 551 pages
Through pointed studies of important aspects and topics of dharma in Dharmasastra, this comprehensive collection shows that the history of Hinduism cannot be written without the history of Hindu law. Part One provides a concise overview of the literary genres in which Dharmasastra was written with attention to chronology and historical developments. Part Two presents descriptive and historical studies of all the major substantive topics of Dharmasastra.
