    Abstract:
    Hinduism—aka Sanatana Dharma—is the oldest living religion. Such a long history is bound to have many struggles, adaptations, evolution, misunderstandings, conflicts, resolutions, and traditions. Hinduism in the Modern World is a mirror to all these, and more. While the editor and contributors of this volume do not claim that this work is comprehensive, which is almost impossible for any book to be on such a vast field, this book definitely provides a glimpse of the past and an idea of the attitude towards the study of Hinduism to be adopted in the present and the future. In his introduction editor Brian A. Hatcher presents the aim of the book to the readers “The book offers an opportunity to think about what it means to be Hindu, for those with some prior familiarity, to add greater complexity to what they already know about Hinduism” (1). Of course, Hinduism in the Modern World achieves much more than this.
