Despite an impressive body of distinguished scholarship on the history of esoteric Buddhism in India, it is only sketchily understood. The author assembles hundreds of works of art, analyzing them formally and stylistically, to determine the chronology of their iconographic themes. This group of art objects is comprised mainly of sculpture surviving from the sixth to the thirteenth centuries at widely scattered sites throughout eastern India, Europe and America. Collectively, the group provides a continuous historical record of the evolution of esoteric Buddhist belief and practice - a record that supplements and often challenges the conclusions of exclusively textual histories.

This is perhaps one of the most intriguing and thorough analysis of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist iconography I have ever had the pleasure to read.

Linrothe's discussion is well researched, deeply insightful and wonderfully eloquent! Not to mention, the book contains a marvelous catalogue of (mostly b & w) pictures to illustrate the volume.

This book is a must for any lover of Himalayan art and art history.

. . . but this is an excellent read on the evolution of eastern Wrathful, great for serious students of eastern religions or for a larger esoteric library or as an artist!

Rob Linrothe has written a superb book on the evolution of Wrathful Deities in India and Tibet. Photos taken by the author and excellent explanations show us in exquisite detail how this form of art developed over the centuries. A wonderful book for those looking to understand Esoteric Buddhism!
