A student-friendly introduction to Buddhism by two renowned scholars, who have selected the contents to afford both breadth and depth of coverage. The key teachings of Buddhism are explained clearly, and the historical development and spread of the religion is traced from its beginnings to the present day. A chapter is devoted to each of the regions where Buddhism has flourished, and this book also takes into account contemporary concerns and allocates separate chapters to the subjects of Engaged Buddhism, Buddhism and War, Buddhism in the Western World, and Meditation.

The book also includes many student-friendly features, including learning goals, summary boxes, and questions for discussion.

"An up-to-date textbook for beginners as well as advanced students of Buddhism. Its clear structure helps beginners getting oriented in the complex field of Buddhism, and its respective chapters are rich in detailed information for students who already have some basic knowledge." Oliver Freiberger.
