5.0 out of 5 stars In defence of history writing, 13 Feb. 2014
This review is from: The Hindus (Paperback)
Wendy Doniger's book 'The Hindus' was withdrawn in February 2014 by Penguin in India after years of court cases and intimidation against the publishers by hardliners interested in orthodoxy rather than historical inquiry. There is also a smear campaign against the book on Amazon. If interested in reviews, this opinion peace in the Guardian is a good starting point: [...]. That said, it doesn't matter if it is a good or a bad book, or whether you agree with its findings or not. A good defence against such an assault on free speech and on the ability of historians to pursue their research freely and according to professional standards of research rather than dogma, would be to buy the book.
