Introducing Buddhism

«

'This is a wonderful book, comprehensive and readable, that covers a wide spectrum of Buddhism. It's clearly presented and probably the best general textbook available today. Aimed at undergraduate readers, it can also provide reliable information for anyone interested in Buddhism.' - John Powers, Australian National University, Australia

'Well-structured, clearly written, and equipped with a variety of helpful didactic tools, Introducing Buddhism is an excellent starting point for studying the complex teachings and religious practices of Buddhism and its historical developments up to the present time. The book provides straightforward orientation for absolute beginners as well as more detailed discussions for advanced students. The first edition of the book has proved its worth in class, and I look forward to using this new, enhanced edition in my introductory classes.' - Oliver Freiberger, The University of Texas at Austin, USA
