Title: Arjuna in the Mahabharata:Where Krishna Is, There IsArjuna in the Mahabharata (Where Krishna Is, There Is Victory)
Author: Katz, Ruth Cecily
Description: This book is a work of unusual breadth and depth that will attract readers in religious studies, comparative literature, Sanskrit, Asian studies, and the humanities in general. It is a thorough analysis of the monumental text of ‘Mahabharata,’ showing the epic figure Arjuna to be a religious role model for Hinduism, on one hand, and perhaps the most fully realized example the Indo-European/Semitic hero, on the other. The author’s fundamental contribution is a portrait of Arjuna that focuses finally on his profound spiritual meaning for Hindus, and for any human being who ponders the great story of this complete person.
