"For the past forty years, Padoux has been on the cutting edge of Tantric studies worldwide. The Hindu Tantric World is quite simply the most comprehensive and accessible overview of Hindu Tantra ever written and the culmination of a lifetime of outstanding achievement."--David Gordon White, University of California, Santa Barbara
"The Hindu Tantric World presents a refreshingly critical, balanced, and concise survey of the field. Doyen of Hindu Tantric studies, Padoux translates the fruits of his decades of specialized research into an elegant and useful guidebook that helpfully situates these traditions within the broader fabric of South Asian religious culture. Nowhere else can a general readership find such an accessible and state-of-the-art treatment of the histories, theories, and practices of Tantric Hinduism."--Christian K. Wedemeyer, University of Chicago
"Andr Padoux has managed to compress a wealth of knowledge on Tantra into less than 200 pages, which is no small feat in itself. The Hindu Tantric World is a survey on Tantra, its influence and its place in modern society."
