[A] wonderful and welcome addition to the field this book will prove to be the best introduction to the study ofTheravada Buddhism available in a Western language for manyyears.
Justin McDaniel, University ofPennsylvania

There is nothing whatsoever like this on the market: sobalanced, comprehensive, easy–to–read, humane,insightful.
