'This book is beautifully written in a clear style that will make even the most arcane aspects of the priestly profession accessible to undergraduate readers. At the same time, it is a theoretically sophisticated work that will be read widely. No one can write about the Minakshi temple priests with the authority that Dr Fuller brings to the task. As ethnography the book is unique.' -- Mattison Mines, University of California, Santa Barbara 'In this book, C J Fuller has cumulated ethnographic experience and data for 26 years and has thus made himself into a consummate ethnographer of the priests of one of the most magnificent temples of South India.' -- Peter van der Veer, University of Amsterdam 'This book will surely be a landmark in Indian anthropology and is almost unique as it is in a manner of speaking a "restudy' of a community of professional specialists, in this case priests. Here we have a richly documented and insightfully analysed account of the contemporar y condition of a group of specialists seen in historical perspective.' --T N Madan, Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi In this book, Chris Fuller studies a community of professional priests from a historical perspective. Since the late 1970s, he has observed the priests of the Minakshi temple of Madurai and studied a transformed priesthood that combines tradition with modernity. This richly documented and analysed volume is a sequel to his earlier work and represents over 20 years of intensive fieldwork at the temple and among its priests. Printed Pages: 229.
