About This Item

New Delhi: Matrix Books, 2001. Minor creasing to edges of unclipped dustwrapper, a small ink-mark inside front board, otherwise a good clean tight copy of this hard-cover book. The author claims that the prohibition of beef and the sacredness of cows did not exist in Hinduism in earlier times. A hugely controversial in India, the book was issued with a new preface in the UK as "The Myth of the Holy Cow". 183pp.. Hard Cover. Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
