Description - Imagining Hinduism by Sharada Sugirtharajah

This is an introductory-level book to open up the controversial debate over Hindu origins. It presents sophisticated and often challenging material in a clear and readable way. Dispensing with theories of "natural" religion in favour of sociological and historical analysis, it gives special reference to the contentious subject of Sati (widow immolation) and to contemporary representations of Hinduism. This book provides a guide to understanding of Hinduism's recent history, modern political significance and global future.
