Synopsis

The Laws of Manu
George Bühler, translator

The Sanskrit text of this work was first translated into English in 1794, and translations into other European languages swiftly followed. No understanding of modern India is possible without it. Wendy Doniger provides a landmark translation, the first authoritative English rendering this century. It is also the first to set the unadulterated text in narrative form, making it accessible and enjoyable both to specialist scholars and to a wider audience. Includes an illuminating introduction.
