Two books are attributed to Chanakya: Arthashastra and Neetishastra (also known as Chanakya Niti).
The Arthashastra discusses monetary and fiscal policies, welfare, international relations, and war strategies in detail. The text also outlines the duties of a ruler. Some scholars believe that Arthashastra is actually a compilation of a number of earlier texts written by various authors, and Chanakya might have been one of these authors.[10]
Neetishastra is a treatise on the ideal way of life, and shows Chanakya's deep study of the Indian way of life. Chanakya also developed Neeti-Sutras (aphorisms - pithy sentences) that tell people how they should behave.. Chanakya used these sutras to groom Chandragupta and other selected disciples in the art of ruling a kingdom.

Chanakya had propounded two major literary works (a) Arthashastra ( monetary and fiscal policies, welfare, international relations, and war strategies) and (b) Neetishastra (also known as Chanakya Niti).
