Description

"The hallmark of this book is its succinct style and readability.... This book will be useful to law students, professors, lawyers of the bench & bar."
This book is a monumental work on Hindu Law, Covering the various aspects of both codified and uncodified law. The entire book has been thoroughly revised and updated in the light of the recent significant amendments and rulings. In Chapters 1 to 15, the author makes an in-depth analysis of the uncodified law, that is, rules as laid down in various Sanskrit books that are regarded as authoritative when it comes to Hindu law. The author then goes on, in Chapters 16 to 20, to discuss the four major Acts pertaining to Hindu law - the Hindu Marriage Act, 195; the Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act, 1956; the Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act, 1956 and the Hindu Succession Act, 1956. The author provides a "Postscript" as Chapter 21, discussing a fundamental question - the justification for existence of community-wise personal laws-and suggests a possible solution.
