Editorial Reviews

?This book is a worthy addition to a literature that supports and thereby provides scholarly links to develop comparitive studies...The book has two distinct features: first, it is a handy and updated textbook on the subject, and second, it provides a good research perspective on the basics, even for and advanced reader. The book is also a major contribution to existing resources on the intellectual history of India. It is simple and creative, readable and detailed, gratifying, penetrating, and eloquent, probing and easy to comprehend even by a foreign student who is little aware of the Indian ethos of print and imprint or of the culture of the Orient and the traditions of the sublime but who with an open mind believes in the dictum "Wise are those who learn from their own experiences; wiser are those who learn from others' experiences."?-Libraries & Culture
