Fascinating collection of essays ... the approach is both wide-ranging and ground-breaking. Scholars of religion as well as scholars of Indian history and literature will find much to interest, inform and perhaps challenge them from the perspective of gender ... an excellent volume which makes for stimulating reading * Religion *
