Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all it's still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Format: Paperback
Preston lacks the influence to be objective when it comes to Chandi Temple. His use of the theories of darshan and ahtman-brahman lack the theoretical context the subject deserves. More emphasise on the symbolice ritual is desired. He does not go into the theories of how the group. expresses itself i.e. vocal/intellectual, symbolic expression/rituual, and social structural/praxise

Preston you pompous turd. I can't believe you force your students to buy your thesis. Isn't simply having you lecture torture enough? Sadistic bastard. To those reading this review...sorry if you don't like it, but the book was really a snoozefest.
