Storm of Songs by John Stratton Hawley Storm of Songs, Hardback (March 2015)

A widely-accepted explanation for India's national unity is a narrative called the bhakti movement--poet-saints singing bhakti from India's southern tip to the Himalayas between 600 and 1600. John Hawley shows that this narrative, with its political overtones, was created by the early-twentieth-century circle around Rabindranath Tagore in Bengal.

Three Bhakti Voices by John Stratton Hawley Three Bhakti Voices, Paperback (September 2012)

A fascinating story of change and transmission, this book describes how Mirabai, Surdas, and Kabir-the most famous and beloved poet-saints of fifteenth and sixteenth centuries-were heard and perceived in their own times and probes into the many beliefs and legends that emerged long after their deaths.
