The Science of Polity – The Arthashastra

The subsistence of mankind is termed artha, wealth; the earth which contains mankind is artha, wealth; that science which treats of the means of acquiring and maintaining the earth is the Arthashastra, Science of Polity…Thus this teaching, conforming to these paragraphic divisions, is composed as a guide to acquire and secure this and the other world. – The Arthashastra, Chanakya/Kautilya
