 DESCRIPTION
spacer
This work based on the study of vast mass of Jain canonical literature which is not yet critically edited and remains unknown, is a valuable study pertaining to social, political, economic, administrative and geographical conditions in ancient India during the period of Mahavira and the subsequent era. It covers the period of more than two thousand years based on canonical texts and commentaries. Its value is enhanced as it presents a comparative study of Buddhist and Brahmanic texts of the age. It is a source book indispensable to all scholars working in the field of ancient Indian history and sociology. It will help readers to have a thorough understanding of Indian Culture through Jain sources and visualize the concept of unity in diversity leading to culture integrity.
