Wow. Now that is what I mean by providing a link. Will read and post back.Scholars do occasionally, just dispersed through the internet. The problem is that Indologists are getting rarer
There's also this: http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~witzel/vedica.pdf which is a PDF available online by Witzel and Jamison on Vedic hinduism, though from what I call the overall book was never published.
It's been a while since I read it, I roughly remember liking some of it, disagreeing with other aspects. I'm not happy to think of a "cut off" point for Vedic religion, nor vedic religioN rather than religions. There's also problems, to my mind, with Witzel arguing that the Vedas act as tape-recorders to past ages. I think at best they're radio transmissions and we're not on quite the same frequency.
Thanks a lot.
