An engrossing and definitive narrative account of history and myth, The Hindus offers a new way of understanding one of the world's oldest major religions. Hinduism does not lend itself easily to a strictly chronological account. Many of its central texts cannot be reliably dated within a century; its central tenets arise at particular moments in Indian history and often differ according to gender or caste; and the differences between groups of Hindus far outnumber the commonalities. Yet the greatness of Hinduism lies precisely in many of these idiosyncratic qualities that continues to inspire debate today. This groundbreaking work elucidates the relationship between recorded history and imaginary worlds, the inner life and the social history of Hindus.

About the Author 
http://divinity.uchicago.edu/images/faculty/doniger.jpg
Wendy Doniger (O'Flaherty) (born November 20, 1940) is a American Indologist and Mircea Eliade Distinguished Service Professor of the History of Religions at the University of Chicago Divinity School, the Department of South Asian Languages and Civilizations, and the Committee on Social Thought. She has taught at the University of Chicago since 1978. Much of her work is focused on translating, interpreting and comparing elements of Hindu mythology through modern contexts of gender, sexuality and identity. She describes herself as "a Sanskritist, indeed a recovering Orientalist" and "an old-fashioned philologist". However, her use of psychoanalysis is widely considered controversial.

THANK-YOU!!

I was wondering if u could upload some SAT preparatory books preferably on subjects:- Maths level 2, physics or chemistry

THANK-YOU ONCE AGAIN FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART
This book is real trash. Poorly researched with a hugely prejudiced view of missionaries who view everything that they do'nt understand as either "exotic" or pagan.
An Excellent book for serious readers.
It will bore people who are looking for some controversy though.
Ignorant people who have not read the book and probably not gone past high school will say this is trash as it looks at Hinduism from a Philological POV.

The book is an outcome of a research in depth. Everything that Hinduism stands for has been portrayed without any prejudice. Sex is the core of Hinduism. Worshipping penis and vagina is Hinduism and Doniger has just stated that. Women were traded and daughters were sold (Kanya Dan) in ancient Hinduism. Group sex, homosexuality and bestiality were prevalent in ancient Hinduism. Don't believe me, visit the temples in Khajuraho and feast your eyes. I couldn't find this book in print. Thanks a ton to uploader, I'll seed this to infinity.
