Editorial Reviews


The entries are well written and assume no knowledge of Hinduism. The most difficult concepts are explained with refreshing lucididty....The author...has created an excellent source of information on Hindu religion and culture. This source is recommended for all academic and medium and large public libraries. It is a significant contribution to religion and multicultural collections. (Arba)

...will help users who are not immersed in Hindu concepts and practice to synthesize ideas and place them in proper context...invaluable to those readers who want to learn more about Hindu thought. (Rettig On Reference)

...a marvelously useful book...Sullivan has the gift of presenting clear definitions in lucid prose and a keen sense of important points needed to explain the overall importance of a topic for Hinduism...Sullivan has masterfully selected terms for inclusion. Each entry is clearly presented and gives evidence of his deep scholarship. Highly recommended for all academic collections. (Choice)

...a compact, convenient resource for those doing research or reading on Hinduism...may well serve as a core work in a small academic library... (Rusq)

This is a commendable volume..a valuable contribution to general works about Hinduism...both the specialist and non-specialist should find something of interest... (Journal Of Contemporary Religion)

...valuable information...a welcome reference tool for undergraduates and the general public. Libraries will--and must--buy it. Many individuals will also want it. (Religious Studies Review)

The breadth and usefulness of the volume is attested by its inclusion of English terms for subjects pertaining to Hinduism, as well as Sanskrit ones...This dictionary will serve its prosepective users very well. (The Quest)
