The Position of Women in Hindu Civilization will enable the reader to understand the subject in its true perspective, as it is based upon a critical and imparital survey of all the available data. The work not only surveys the position of Hindu women during the last four thousand years but also indicates the general lines on which the present day problems confronting them should be solved. The treatment is quite impartial; the limitations of the Hindu civilization have not been passed over nor its excellences exaggerated, nor vice versa.
