About the Author:

Hillary P. Rodrigues is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Lethbridge, Canada. His many authored and edited works include Studying Hinduism in Practice (Routledge 2011) and Introduction to the Study of Religion (Routledge 2009).

Review:

"In this new edition Rodrigues extends his comprehensive approach to Hinduism’s long history and complex network of sacred stories, ritual practices, and philosophical thought that he constructed in the first edition. This new edition weaves case studies of communities, leaders, and perspectives that take the reader closer into the lived realities of Hindu life. For students and readers who want to know where to begin in their understanding of Hinduism, this is the book." Paul B. Courtright, Emory University, USA

"This edition will provide a comprehensive and useful introduction, starting point, and reference to the Hindu tradition... . It is extremely well suited for the classroom." Sushil Mittal, Professor of Hindu Studies, James Madison University, USA

"Introducing Hinduism is, quite simply, the best book of its kind. An instructor can, by being selective, use it quite effectively as an introductory text, but it has enough depth that it can be a springboard for more advanced examination of primary texts or anthropological case studies. It is comprehensive, thorough and engaging enough for the general reader to get an excellent grounding in the dauntingly complex web of Hindu traditions." David McMahan, Franklin and Marshall College, USA
