Sakti's Revolution: Origins & Historiography of Indic Fierce Goddesses
By Donna Jordan
481 pages, Illustrated
Sakti's Revolution: Origin and Historiography of Indic Fierce Goddesses chronicles the historical evolution of Hindu and Buddhist Fierce, Kali-like goddesses and their devotees, from the Indus Valley civilization, c. third millennium BCE, to the present. The author documents and analyzes the undercurrents of misogyny, greed, and violence - the demonic forces against which Sakti wages warfare - that have formed the historiography of fierce goddesses in India.
