The Mahabharata and the Yugas: India's Great Epic Poem and the Hindu System of World Ages.
The yugas or "ages of the world" have long been a vibrant object of study for scholars of early Hinduism.
The substance of the book alternates between two approaches: attempts to draw distinctions between earlier and later passages in the Mbh, and focused analysis of specific passages dealing with the yugas and other aspects of the representation of time in the epic.
