Description
Review
The Palas of Bengal and Bihar had contributed immensely for the growth and development of the history and culture of our ancient past. In more sense than one, it is a glorious period also in the cultural history of the above land. During this period, an efflorescence of lierature, Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism, and art and architecture enriched our cultural heritage. Not a single monograph has so far been published on their numerous epigraphs which has attracted our attention more and more, and finally we are able to produce a comprehensive monograph on the above subject.
The subject matter includes Introduction, the Pala Insriptions in outline, political history of the Pala Kings and their genealogy, administration, social and economic life, religion and iconography, art and architecture, the learning and education of the society and the literary value of the inscriptions and Bibliography. It was submitted as thesis for the Ph.D. degree in Jadavpur University in 1987. Three of the Examiners of India and abroad have expressed their high opinions regarding this monumental work.
