Product description

Review

I recommend Sangharakshita's book as the best survey of Buddhism. --Dr Edward Conze, author of 'Buddhism: Its Essence and Development' and translator of 'Buddhist Wisdom Books and The Perfection of Wisdom in 8,000 Lines'

Simply the most complete single volume survey of all the major doctrines and traditions in the development of Buddhism. --Buddhist Peace Fellowship

A considerable achievement of Buddhist scholarship... this book can be heartily recommended to readers of all schools of thought. --The Middle Way

About the Author

A respected translator and author of over fifty books, Sangharakshita began studying BUddhism at the age of 16. After 20 years studying in India he returned to England and set up the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order which has over 65 centres worldwide, including the USA.
