Same thing, different title(s).,
This review is from: The Search for the Buddha: The Men Who Discovered India's Lost Religion (Hardcover)
Don't buy this overpriced item ; instead, buy the identical UK edition, entitled 'The Buddha and the Sahibs' at a fraction of the cost. You can find it on Amazon. Better still, buy the book on which it was (heavily) based, John Keay's dazzling 'India Discovered', which is one of my favourite EVER books on India (just as it was for William Dalrymple). Same story, essentially - how the colonial Brits gave India her ancient history back - only much better written, in my opinion.

Thank you, Mr. Phelps, for saving me a little money; I'd wondered why the author had written two books which were apparently so similar, but once I'd read your comment I understood - and ordered the cheaper edition. This is the sort of feedback from amazon users which is really useful.
