The volume is an erudite work on Nobel Laureate Prof. Amartya Sen's perception of Hinduism and the Hindus as evident in his books The Argumentative Indian and Identity and Violence.

It is to the latter that Francis Zimmermann turns his attention, in a remarkable evocation that combines Sanskrit studies and anthropology. He reconstructs and exposes the linkage between...
