In this excellent work on the Pūrāṇas, Dr. Srinivasan has again made the highly complex and sophisticated literature of an equally complex and sophisticated culture accessible to the contemporary reader. He has a gift for communicating complex ideas in a way that makes them clear and easy to grasp, but does so without losing sight of their inherent complexity.” Professor Jeff Long, Elizabeth College, PA
