Details

This is a fresh look at the history of Ancient India, centering on the Law Code of Manu (Manusmriti / Manu Dharmashastra), and its relationship to Rigveda and its possible relationship to the Indus/Harappan Civilisation of 4000 to 5000 years ago. It also throws light on Aryan society and culture, castes and guilds, use of technology and related practices in the Indus Valley Civilisation. Dr. Charles Naegele, a practicing lawyer in Silicon Valley, California, USA, and a lifelong student of classical Indian knowledge, has written a work that will be certain to stir up controversy regarding the re-dating of the Law Code of Manu and the well-documented research concerning almost no possibility of “Aryan Invasion Theory” and the numerous similarities between the text of the Law Code of Manu and the archeological finds from the Indus/Harappan Civilisation. Scholars and history buffs, as well as everyone who is proud of Indian heritage will enjoy not only this work, but also his future works.
