TOC PART I: HISTORICAL AND CONCEPTUAL BACKGROUND; PART II: SUBSTANTIVE HINDU LAW BEYOND TRADITION AND MODERNITY; PART III: CONCLUDING ANALYSIS
This book contends that contrary to those who proclaimed it dead, Hindu law remains a complex living system that has reached a condition of postmodernity and that, along with Hindu custom and cultural concepts, it continues to play an integral role in legal developments today.
