"Ruthless Compassion" offers a visual history of esoteric Buddhism centered on the changing representations of the wrathful deity. This group of art objects is comprised mainly of sculpture surviving from the sixth to the thirteen centuries at widely scattered sites throughout eastern India, Europe and America. Linrothe isolates the wrathful deity as an especially revealing ideological marker in the develpment of esoteric Buddhism.
