Falk (comparative religion, Western Michigan U.) wonders whether her field focuses too much on history, and whether there is a way to introduce the study of religious traditions that accounts more fully for the here and now without losing access to the historical dimensions. She tries it here, focusing on the cluster of traditions known today as Hinduism, and working through a combination of typology and history. Her study is a textbook, not a travel guide as the subtitle might suggest. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
