This book is about the popular cinema of North India ("Bollywood") and how it recasts literary classics. It addresses questions about the interface of film and literature, such as how Bollywood movies rework literary themes, offer different (broader or narrower) interpretations, shift plots, stories, and characters to accommodate the medium and the economics of the genre, sometimes even changing the way literature is read. This book addresses the socio-political implications of popular reinterpretations of "elite culture", exploring gender issues and the perceived "sexism" of the North Indian popular film and how that plays out when literature is reworked into film. Written by an international group of experts on Indian literature and film, the chapters in this book focus on these central questions, but also cover a wide range of literary works that have been adapted in film. Each part of the book discusses how a particular genre of literature has been "recast" into film. The individual chapters focus on comparisons and close studies of individual films or film songs inspired by "classics" of literature. The book will be of interest to those studying Indian film and literature and South Asian popular culture more generally.

Feminist philosophy of religion has developed in recent years because of the exposure of explicit sexism in much traditional philosophical thinking about religion. The struggle with a discipline shaped almost exclusively by men has led feminist philosophers to redress the problematic biases of gender, race, class and sexual orientation in the traditional subject. Feminist Philosophy of Religion: Critical Readings brings together key new writings in this growing field. Part one of the reader explores important approaches to the feminist philosophy of religion, including psychoanalytic, poststructualist, postmetaphysical and epistemological frameworks. In part two, the contributors survey significant topics including questions of divinity, embodiment, spirituality and religious practice. Supported by explanatory prefaces and an extensive bibliography, Feminist Philosophy of Religion: Critical Readings is an important resource for this new area of study.

This book contains the reports given at the Eighth Bhakti Conference organized in Leuven in August 2000. Forty scholars came to Leuven, hailing from fourteen different countries -- from Japan to the west coast of the United States -- each one bringing his or her expertise and experience. Nearly all the reports are published here. In addition, another twenty scholars sent a report or their list of publications. The result is a fascinating overview of the very wide field that Bhakti studies have become, with a list of 1162 books and articles, and reports about Bengali, Braj, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi and Rajasthani literature, lexicography, musicology, Santa literature, Sikhism, Gorakhanath, Kabir, Krishna Bhakti, Lalan Fakir, Mirabai, Ramananda, Surdas, Tulsidas, and many other topics of research. A detailed index makes all this matter easily accessible.
