From the Back Cover:

In this unique introduction to the literature of the Hindu tradition, Klaus K. Klostermaier presents the rich diversity of writings with a characteristic blend of authority and clarity.

From the ancient Vedas, through the sweeping epic that is the Mahabharata, to the words of Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, and contemporary teachers like Sathya Sai Baba, the author treads a steady path through the complexity and volume of Hindu literature. Featuring an introduction and commentary for each extract, this text covers all the key areas of the Hindu writings, including:
-- Indra, Siva and Krsna: the major gods their role in the scriptures, and their associated sects
-- Hinduism and femininity in the scriptures: the goddesses of the Devi religion
-- classical Hindu philosophy and theology
-- nationalism and secularity: modern political writings
-- the continuing controversy of caste

A coherent and informative guide that demonstrates both the development of the tradition and the profound wisdom at its core, this book will be appreciated by readers of all levels and backgrounds.
