Asko Parpola

I had made an obscene amount of blather about the Vedic nature of the Mitanni elite.

I just found out today that Asko Parpola has already written a whole book about Vedic origins. The Roots of Hinduism is already Googlable and comes out formally on 12 August. Admittedly it's published by Oxford, near-worthless on other Near Eastern topics.

From what little I've seen (i.e., Google), TRoH's likely to be quite a bit better than its publisher's output on Islam. Certainly better than Wendy Doniger's more sensationalist material via Penguin.
