Review:


"This is a timely and well-written collection of articles covering a variety of time-periods, literature and oral genres, and methodologies. This volume is well suited to upper level courses on Indian religion, especially those with an emphasis on gender and methodology. Individual chapters would augment courses on Vedic literature and folk religion, as well as Hindu traditions." --Religous Studies Review
