This volume focuses on the role of religion- encompassing beliefs, ethics, ritual, devotional literature, folk culture, popular narratives, and artistic expression-and its role in the construction and deconstruction of caste and power in India. In this context it also examines the hierarchy of gender. -- Publisher description."@en ;
