Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: The Position of Women in Hindu Civilization will enable the reader to understand the subject in true perspective, as it is based upon a critical and impartial survey of all the available data. The work not only surveys the position of Hindu women during the last four thousand years but also indicates the general lines on which the present day problems confronting them should be solved. The treatment is quite impartial; the limitations of the Hindu Civilization have not been passed over nor its excellences exaggerated, nor vice versa. The subject has never been treated with such realism, accuracy, impartiality and comprehensiveness. The general reader will find the book absorbingly interesting. The scholar will find it original and illuminating. The student of sociology will find it stimulating and indispensable.

Review: ''The considerable interest currently being expressed in women and religion has thrown down an important challenge: the need to see women not merely as the passive victims of an oppressive ideology but also, perhaps primarily, as the active agents of their own positive constructs. Twelve contributors study the role of women in Hindu religion by examining textual studies of the part played by women in a variety of religious rituals, both past and present by exploring the socio-religious context of their various communities; and by using specialist material to draw on cross-cultural conclusions.'' ---Roles and rituals for Hindu women, Julia Leslie

''For the study of the lay-women the author has exploited the material found in the Canonical literature, the Commentaries thereon, the Jatakas and the Milindapanha, while most of the material for the account of the alms-women is gathered from the Vinay-pitaka, the Therigatha and the Commentaries. The study reveals the spiritual experiences of some of the lay-and alms-women. It throws light on the various social conditions prevailing during the lifetime of Buddha and shortly after.'' ---Women under primitive Buddhism, I.B. Horner

''This is a well rounded text, targeted towards the relationships between Hindu women and society. This interesting and informative work spans almost four thousand years of experience. Position of Women is superbly organized according to the principal divisions of a woman s life, taking one through discussions of issues such as 'The Position of the Widow', 'Dress and Ornaments', 'Marriage and Divorce' and 'Proprietary Rights'.'' - --V. G. Julie Rajan, Hinduism Today, January, 1997
