Devi, the Great Goddess of India, is beautiful, beneficent, terrifying, all-powerful, and glorious.

Devi: The Great Goddess brings together one hundred and twenty of these diverse examples of Devi and a group of distinguished essayists who explore facets of Devi worship and tradition, including ritual, architecture, literature, history, and contemporary issues such as feminism and gender politics.
