"Social and Political Thought Of Buddhist Writers is a work of Dr. K.B.Krishna. Quoting from Buddhist writings. The author concludes that Buddhism has trimmed and tempered the conception of monarchy with its humanitarian ideals.  It has purged it of divinity. Set aside the baneful influence of priests and sought the origin of authority in the people.  It made kingship an office and relegated sacrifices to the background.  It exalted the conception of equality and on that ground attacked the caste system". - Kambhampati Satyanarayana
"The author's analysis is based on the Marxist theory of social development.  One may not agree with the Marxist theory, but the presentation of irrefutable facts in chronological order and the conclusion drawn by the author can not but impress an unbiased mind." - Sunil Bhattacharya
