The earlier chapters of the present volume deal with a large number of topics relating to kingship, landlordism (sometimes mistaken as feudalism), tenancy, royal charters, Pancayat system, etc. Some of the following chapters contain discussions on certain royal officers (also continued in one of the apendices), the functions of some of them or their departments, a few aspects of the judicial system, some land measures and taxes etc., etc. The third group of topics discussed in the book mostly concerns the interpretation of technical expressions found in epigraphical records. The last section of the work consists of several appendices which are really some of the author`s recently published studies. Of these, one deals with the democratic traditions of ancient India and another with the functioning of the guilds, while a third contains a number of popular conceptions about the duties of kings. The subject of the last of the appendices is the traders` privileges guaranteed by kings, which has been included here as a topic relating to kingship, though it is equally suitable for a study of economic life.
