MILNER, MURRAY 1994, STATUS AND SACREDNESS, OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS,New York
This is a book about social theory; it is also an empirical analysis. The empirical focus is the Indian caste system and Hinduism—though comparisons are made with other societies. While the analysis contains much detailed information about Hindu India, no previous knowledge of this culture is assumed. In many respects I depart from recent interpretations of India that stress its cultural uniqueness. The aim is to systematically explain the most prominent social and cultural features of Hindu India in a way that makes sense to both the novice and the specialist.
