Hinduism: The Anthropology of a Civilization

Mandeleine Biardeau (Author)

It is a truism that Hinduism is a 'way of life' rather than a religion; that it is free of dogma and infinitely accommodating. Biardeau brings to light the many constituents of this 'way of life', using evidence from archaeological monuments and literary texts. She presents the underlying unity beneath the bewildering diversity of this living tradition whose history can be traced back three millennia.

In this engaging account of a much-studied society and culture, Biardeau takes the reader through an interpretation of the epics, traditional customs and social norms. Guarding against ethnocentrism, her narrative digresses to point to parallels with the Western world.

This book will be of interest to those seeking an understanding of India's culture.
