Summary
'Heathen, Hindoo, Hindu' is a groundbreaking analysis of American representations of religion in India before the turn of the twentieth century. Before Americans wrote about 'Hinduism', they wrote about 'heathenism', 'the religion of the Hindoos', and 'Brahmanism'. Americans used the heathen, Hindoo, and Hindu as an other against which they represented themselves. The questions of American identity, classification, representation and the definition of 'religion' that animated descriptions of heathens, Hindoos, and Hindus in the past still animate American debates today.--
