6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on June 30, 1997
Format: Paperback
This is a quite academic book about Buddhism in modern day Asia. It gives a brief introduction to several different approaches of modern application of Buddhism. It starts with the Ambedkarite Movement in India and ends with the Soka Gakkai in Japan. Well worth reading, especially if you think that Buddhism is a pessimistic religion
