Since 1958 Sources of Indian Tradition has been one of the most important and widely used texts on civilization in South Asia (now the nation-sates of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nepal), helping generations of students and lay readers understand how leading thinkers there have looked at life, the traditions of their ancestors, and the world they live in. This second edition has been extensively revised, with new translations and updated materials.

Wendy Doniger O Flaherty

This is a serious, careful, dependable book , broader and more varied even than the old Sources. . . . The new translations are always sound, often charming, and occasionally quite brilliant. This is the primary study of Indian civilization.
