Product Description:

* Presents the most recent scholarly thinking about Hinduism in an accessible way. * Leading scholars make their views and research available to a wider readership. * Divided into four sections covering theoretical issues, textual traditions, science and philosophy, and Hindu society and politics.

Review:

"This collection offers a new way to parse the multiple entryways into the vast arena of Hinduism. Using the general divisional categories of theoretical issues, text and tradition, systematic thought, and society, politics and nation, Flood has achieved significant breadth in disciplines, subjects and historical perspectives." Choice


"This is a most welcome, timely, and authoritative assessment of the entire field of study, a most commendable response to an enormous challenge." Journal of Contemporary Religion

"It effectively serves to condense the proliferation of scholarship on Hinduism... The approach is interdisciplinary and places Hinduism not within a sphere of its own, but within a larger context, reading it as a dynamic product of historical global exchange. The Blackwell Companion to Hinduism also has an important section devoted to the Indian Sciences (language, mathematics, astrology, astronomy and medicine) which collectively destabilize colonialism's claim that Hinduism was arbitrary and irrational. ... A handsome addition to academic and personal libraries." Asian Studies Review
