"This is a lucid, wide-ranging book that offers a comprehensive overview of the major beliefs and practices associated with Hindu goddess traditions. Lynn Foulston has done a masterful job bringing together a broad range of scholarship on the Goddess and making the material accessible to a general audience." --Tracy Pintchman, author, The Rise of Goddess in the Hindu Tradition "This rich overview of goddesses' role in Hinduism addresses goddesses as manifestations of Shakti, the elite philosophical position most often discussed in treatises on Hinduism, and from a popular perspective, as individuated beings, which is the 'religion as lived' perspective of the majority. . . . Highly recommended." --Choice
