In this long-awaited volume, Charles Prebish, the founder of the scholarly study of Buddhism in America, brings us up to date on the rich, diverse, and very American practice of Buddhism in the United States.
This book is not for scholars only, but deserves to be read by Buddhists and by anyone interested in the diversity and the freshness of this ancient religion in these new surroundings. In fact, Buddhism has been in America for over 100 years, but in this last generation it has begun not only to be changed by, but to change American culture. For a look at where Buddhism has been and where it is going, this is an unbeatable source.
