Product description

Review

Manages to give a flavor of adaptations made and being made within Buddhism, not merely as a result of its encounter with modernization, but also because of its historical diversity. In a book that probably has a chapter or two to fit everyone's interests―perusal of the index certainly gave me room for optimism―I found it rewarding also to find areas new to me addressed in accessible and engaging ways. (Journal of Global Buddhism)
