Abstract

This volume assembles a collection of essays on the new religious reform movements that swept India in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. One general account, exploring the theme of religious leadership, provides a context for specialized essays on the Brahmo Samaj, the Ramakrishna Mission, The Arya Samaj, the Ahmadiya movement and the Theosophists.
