Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner of the 2006 Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy Book Prize, South Asia Council, Association for Asian Studies

From the Inside Flap

"This is the first time Indian Modern Yoga has received such sustained, in-depth treatment by a reputable and well-informed scholar. Much of the book is quite accessible to the general reader, and many of Alter's more theoretical and analytical interpretations of modern understandings of yoga, health, medicine, the body, and truth claims are novel and stimulating. Highly recommended."--Elizabeth De Michelis, Director, Dharam Hinduja Institute of Indic Research, Cambridge University

"Yoga in Modern India is a mine of thought-provoking propositions in regard to the historiography of classical and modern writing on yoga. Well written, it provides detailed and frequently provocative analyses of particular yogic ideas and practices that contribute to a more sophisticated discussion about the status of modern yoga in its various guises over the last one-and-a-half centuries."--Waltraud Ernst, University of Southampton, author of Plural Medicine, Tradition, and Modernity, 1800-2000 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I got this one out of the stacks to see if anyone has learned more about the relations of "gymnastics" and "yoga" since I last went looking oh about 1970. Joseph Alter's book reminded me that no one in the field we share, medical anthropology, is about to answer a straightforward question like that but when you start reading you don't care.
