1930. This work is not an attack on Hinduism. It is not meant to influence American citizens by pointing to a foreign menace. Nor is it a defense of Hinduism. It is simply a study of the amazing adventure of an Eastern faith in a Western land. Accordingly, it is not a collection of curious or sensational anecdotes about a few of the many Hindu swamis and yogis visiting these shores, but an account of the serious impact on American life of Hindu philosophy and culture especially in the form of organized religion. Sample contents: Hindu movements in America; classic Vedanta; Saint Ramakrishna; Vivekananda.
