Format: Hardcover
This is a very interesting book written in English. However, I've found many absences or omissions of renowned historical, literary and religious stories in the book, e.g. Buddhist sutras translated into classical Chinese from the original Sanskrit and Pali texts. I'd like to read more comprehensive books on the history & literature of India, and also of Tibet.
