Editorial Reviews


"This volume covers an array of key facets of Buddhism(s), and does so with a good balance between topics and thinkers/schools. It also features essays about different Buddhist regions, including the United States."

Christopher Ives, Stonehill College, USA

"In The Buddhist World, John Powers has brought together many of the world's best Buddhism scholars to create a volume that approaches the tradition from several key angles: historical, geographical, religious, philosophical, social, and biographical….The book as a whole is a landmark contribution, sure to be a source of information for general readers and an important research tool for scholars for many years to come."

Roger R. Jackson, Carleton College, USA
