Product Description
An engrossing and definitive, if controversial, narrative account of history and myth, "The Hindus" offers a new way of understanding one of the world's oldest major religions. Hinduism does not lend itself easily to a strictly chronological account. Many of its central texts cannot be reliably dated within a century; its central tenets arise at particular moments in Indian history and often differ according to gender or caste; and the differences between groups of Hindus far outnumber the commonalities. Yet the greatness of Hinduism lies precisely in many of these idiosyncratic qualities that continues to inspire debate today. This groundbreaking work elucidates the relationship between recorded history and imaginary worlds, the inner life and the social history of Hindus. (Penguin withdrew the book from the Indian market in early 2014 after it caused a stir in India.)

"Don't miss this equivalent of a brilliant graduate course from a feisty and exhilarating teacher." --The Washington Post
