Invading the Sacred
Invading The Sacred: An Analysis Of Hinduism Studies In America is a critical work published in 2007 by Rupa & Co. which discusses perceived factual inaccuracies in Hindu studies. The editors of the book are Antonio de Nicolas, Krishnan Ramaswamy, and Aditi Banerjee. The book has contributions from Arvind Sharma of McGill University, S. N. Balagangadhara of Ghent University, psychoanalyst Alan Roland, Yvette Rosser, Ramesh N. Rao, Pandita Indrani Rampersad, Yuvraj Krishnan, and others. Rajiv Malhotra has played a lead role in drafting most of the book’s content. He has publicly stated in various forums that through this book he intends to bring focus on and provide a counter voice to the prevalent Freudian psychoanalytical critiques of Hinduism in the American Academy of Religion’s RISA group. After the controversy surrounding Wendy Doniger's book The Hindus: An Alternative History erupted in India, the authors of this book decided to make it freely available online as it critiques a major part of her work.
