About this item

The Norton Anthology of World Religions offers a beautifully designed library of more than 1,000 primary texts, accompanied by headnotes, annotations, glossaries, maps, illustrations, chronologies, and a dazzling general introduction by Pulitzer Prize winner Jack Miles. This collection “will unsettle some current certainties about the nature of faith and, in so doing, may help its readers arrive at a nuanced and accurate perception of our predicament in this dangerously polarized world” (Karen Armstrong, New York Times).Unprecedented in scope and approach, The Norton Anthology of World Religions: Hinduism brings together over 300 texts from 1500 B.C.E. to the present, organized chronologically and by region. The volume features Jack Miles’s illuminating General Introduction—“How the West Learned to Compare Religions”—as well as Wendy Doniger’s “The Zen Diagram of Hinduism,” a lively primer on the history of Hinduism in relation to geography, language, gender, sexuality, class, folk traditions, and the politics of empire.
