You might know Mark Singleton from his earlier book Yoga Body: The Origins of Modern Posture Practice, which caused quite a stir when it came out. I found it interesting, challenging, never a bad thing, he has a new project.
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
What is it?
We (Mark Singleton and James Mallinson) are putting together a new sourcebook of yoga texts from the Indian traditions. Entitled Roots of Yoga, the book will make available for the first time in a single volume many of the most important primary texts of yoga through the ages. All the translations will be our own and many will be from texts not previously translated. Roots of Yoga will be arranged thematically and highlight the major historical moments of yoga's evolution within the Indian subcontinent (from about 500BCE to 1750CE), showing the continuities, disjunctions and developments that have characterized its theory and practice across the centuries.
Here's the link to the project page, some nice pictures.
And a link to an interview with Mark by Carol Horton on Elephant.
