The three essays in this book deal with the political ramifications of both the form and the content of Gita 2.47 through nineteenth and twentieth-century commentaries on and translations of the Gita. They also study the style of narration of the Mahabharata War, and the ethical significance of the term Anrsamsaya ( non-cruelty / leniency ), which functions as a middle term between violence and non-violence in the Mahabharata.
