"Chock-full of interesting details and new insights. This is an excellent, meticulously researched, and clearly written book. It will be useful in courses on Indian religion in general and on the Goddess in particular, either by itself or in conjunction with its companion book oftranslations, Singing to the Godess: Poems to Kali and Uma from Bengal (New York: Oxford University Press, 2001)"-The Journal of Religion
