Invading the sacred: an analysis of Hinduism studies in America - New Delhi Rupa & Co. 2007 - xxi, 545 p.

India, once a major civilizational and economic power that suffered centuries of decline, is now newly resurgent in business, geopolitics and culture. However, a powerful counterforce within the American academy is systematically undermining core icons and ideals of Indic culture and thought. For instance, scholars of this counterforce have disparaged the Bhagavad Gita as “a dishonest book”; declared Ganesha’s trunk a “limpphallus”; classified Devi as the “mother with apenis” and Shiva as “a notorious womanizer” who incites violence in India.
