FOREWORD

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
N.S. Ramaswami                                     Assistant Editor, Indian Express, Madras.

Though Emperor Asoka was one of the greatest sons of India, few popular books have been written about him. There is a considerable literature concerning him, but it has all been written by scholars. These savants have produced much valuable work, analyzing his inscriptions, studying the monuments he erected, evaluating the legends that have grown around him. But there is little in all this for the average reader.

Therefore, I commend Mr. Krishnamurthi's book. It possesses an essential quality, enthusiasm. The author, as is right and justified, holds a high opinion of the emperor, and he is not behind hand in expressing his opinion. 

But enthusiasm alone is not enough in a work of this nature. The author needs knowledge, judgement, and perspicacity. Mr.Krishnamurthi exhibits all these, and the result is a very satisfying book.
