About the Author

John Brockington, D.Phil. (1968), Oxford, is Reader and Head of the Department of Sanskrit at the University of Edinburgh. He has published widely on the epics and on the history of Hinduism (The Sacred Thread, Hinduism and Christianity).


'This most welcome volume presents not only a staggering compendium of research on the Sanskrit epics done over the past two hundred years, but also the judicious, modestly argued evaluations of that research by a scholar whose intimacy with the Mahabharata and Ramayana appears to be nearly matchless.' David L. Gitomer, The Journal of Asian Studies. 'This volume will be of great value to graduate students and others seeking a convenient reference book on the Sanskrit epics.' Frederick M. Smith, Religious Studies Review, 2002. 'Das umfassende Handbuch [...]wird auf lange Zeit die Grundlage fur alle weiteren Forschungen zum altindischen Epos bilden und jedem, der sich mit diesen Texten in irgendeiner Weise Beschaftigt, ein sicherer und zuverlassiger Fuhrer sein.' Oskar von Hinuber, Wiener Zeitschrift fur die Kunde Sudasiens, 2002.
