Mit dieser Art der Betrachtung der hinduistischen Tempel ist mehr gelungen als nur eine Bestandsaufnahme der Bauwerke zu vollziehen. Carina Back zeigt mit ihrem Blick auf die Tempel, wie die tamilisch-hinduistische Tradition in Deutschland materielle und rituelle Gestalt gewinnt. Die Autorin bietet damit einen religionswissenschaftlichen Spiegel dieser Glaubensgemeinschaft(en), der nicht nur aus fachwissenschaftlicher Perspektive wertvoll, sondern auch von allgemeinem Interesse ist, da er einen Einblick in die zunächst verwirrende Gestaltung hinduistischer Tempel tamilischer Prägung gibt, wie sie sich derzeit in Deutschland finden und für dieses Land maßgeblich, wenn nicht fast ausschließlich, das Erscheinungsbild des Hinduismus als Bestandteil dieser Gesellschaft prägen.

This book presents an innovative approach to gender, nationalism, and the relations between them, and analyses the broader social base of Hindu nationalist organisation to understand the growth of ´Hindutva´, or Hindu nationalism, in India. Arguing that Hindu nationalist thought and predilections emerge out of, and, in turn, feed, pre-existing gendered tendencies, the author presents the new concept of ´masculine hegemony´, specifically Brahmanical masculine hegemony. The book offers a historical overview of the processes that converge in the making of the identity ´Hindu´, in the making of the religion ´Hinduism´, and in the shaping of the movement known as ´Hindutva´. The impact of colonialism, social reform, and caste movements is explored, as is the role of key figures such as Mohandas Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, and Narendra Modi. The book sheds light on the close, yet uneasy, relations that Hindu nationalist thought and practice have with conceptions of ´modernity´, ´development´ and women´s movements, and politics, and the future of Hindu nationalism in India. A new approach to the study of Hindu nationalism, this book offers a theoretically innovative understanding of Indian history and socio-politics. It will be of interest to academics working in the field of Gender studies and Asian Studies, in particular South Asian history and politics.

Hinduism is the oldest and the third largest religion by population. There are more than a billion Hindus in India, Nepal, Indonesia (Bali), Mauritius, Canada, New Zealand, Kenya, and elsewhere in the world who practice the faith.
