Book Reviews for the Blog

As the Indian Philosophy Blog Book Review Editor, I would like to invite scholars in the field to write book reviews for the blog.  I’ve listed a few possible books for review here, but please contact me if you have an idea for a book to review or if you are an author, editor, or publisher with a book you’d like to see reviewed here.

Other than the first book on this list, I am currently unable to provide complimentary copies for reviewers.  If there is a book that you’d like to review I can contact the publisher on your behalf.
