"This comprehensive study of Hindu history moves swiftly but thoroughly through the ages, from the early emergence of the Vedic tradition to developments in contemporary Hinduism. A wealth of factual information is finely balanced with illuminating discussion of such problematic areas as the true origins of Hinduism and the controversy of the Aryan Invasion. Other features include: full coverage of all the major branches within the religion, and their origins; the role of philosophical reflection in the development of Hinduism; the future of Hinduism; a quick-reference chronology, bibliography and extensive glossary."--BOOK JACKET
In the paradise of Krishna; Hindu and Christian seekers by Klaus K Klostermaier ( Book )

The author took over the "St Peter's Chair for Christian Philosophy" at a Vaishnava theological college in Vrindaban, in order to start, in addition to his own study of various aspects of Hinduism, a department of "Christianity". In the course of two years, many things happened and this book is meant to relate experiences, thoughts and impressions that the author had. "To those who have no opportunity of entering into 'dialogue' with followers of other religions it may give a little insight into the reality of inward and outward dialogue with Hinduism"
