THIS BOOK provides a comprehensive look into the issues and challenges that India faces as it tries to put a uniform civil code into practice. Scholars representing a wide range of disciplines, from both North America and India, provide perspective on complex issues of multiculturalism that characterizes Indian society and identities. Readers seeking a deeper understanding of Indian history and culture will find a sensitive handling of the tensions between religious law and the claims of a modern, secular state in this timely volume.

Gerald James Larson is Rabindranath Tagore Professor of Indian Culture and Civilization, and Director of India Studies programme at Indiana University, Bloomington.
