About the Author

Patrick Olivelle is Alma Cowden Madden Centennial Professor in Liberal Arts and Professor of Sanskrit and Indian Religions at the University of Texas at Austin. His translations of the Upanishads, the Dharmasutras, and the Pancatantra all appear in the Oxford World's Classics series.


"Patrick Olivelle's new critical edition of this text, based on a full study of the extant manuscripts and the nine early commentaries on the the text, is very much to be welcomed." --The Journal of Legal History "This edition of Manu's Code of Law is the fruit of more than twelve years of continued work. Although a project of such dimensions naturally involves collaboration between a large number of persons and institutions, no one reading through the book will fail to sense the lucid mind of the author on every page. This work is an extraordinary accomplishment." --The Journal of Asian Studies "Patrick Olivelle has done yeomen service to the cause of modern research in Sanskrit and Indology. Olivelle's erudition and non-judmental attitude is clearly evident."--The Hindu "It is clear that Olivelle understands the text better than previous translators. This monumental work is likely to remain unsurpassed." --Religious Studies Review
