Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

As one of the world's largest religions, Hinduism has become an increasingly important area of study. Combining religion, philosophy, history, and textual studies, Hindu studies produces wide-ranging research and scholarship on varied aspects of the world's oldest living religion. Much of this work has moved online, so that today students and researchers have ready access to key primary source texts and a range of electronic resources.

OBO Hinduism launched with 50 individual articles on important topics in all areas of research in the study of Hinduism, including articles on "Bhagavad Gita," "Karma," and "Iconography." Each article offers a selective annotated guide through the key titles, and gives users the ability to link through to library catalogues, electronic journals, and other web-based resources and databases. All articles have been written by experts in the field, and were carefully peer-reviewed for balance and accuracy.
