The book is rich in details and full of information about the Jaina way of life . an excellent piece of research which contributes substantially to the understanding of Jaina ethics and way of life . it will certainly be ofgreat import to cultural anthropologists.'Contemporary South Asia'Laidlaw's details and careful argumentation override the occasional heavy-handed appeals to theoretical models, ultimately leaving the reader satiated and unquestionably better informed about Jain belief and practice. This book would be appropriate for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and a must for anyone seriously interested in Indian religions, the urban middle-class, or social ethics.'Religious Studies Review'James Laidlaw's Riches and Renunciation is the most substantial book in this flurry of scholarship . Laidlaw in good post-structuralist fashion is content to let the contradictions and tensions exist side by side in a web of relationships.'Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies.
