 SELECTED LETTERS OF ANANDA K. COOMARASWAMY

Edited by ALVIN MOORE, JR. and RAMA POONAMBULAM COOMARASWAMY

1988, xxxiii+479 pp. App., bibl., indexes, ISBN: 19-562306-1: Rs 250 (HB)


Ananda K Commaraswamy's contributions in the field of art and literature are stupendous. But little is known about the man himself. The letters included in this volume, published for the first time, reveal the being of this uncompromising man, who believed in no theories of ideologies, political or philosophic isms. Combining scientific precision acquired through his training as a geologist, with his own great sensitivity, Coomaraswamy addresses himself to the disciplines of history, philosophy, religion, arts and crafts. The letters show incredible range of his mind which cuts across civilizations, cultures, languages, arts and crafts, encompassing the whole.
