Oxford University Press, 1999 - Travel - 277 pages
This is a fascinating account of the author's travels through the Deccan, studying the interplay of topography and theology. Aitken attempts to explain the lure of the awesome plateau country to which he returned every year for twelve years, mesmerized by the rocky expansiveness, even as he dwells on the meaning of divinity.
