Summary
BUDDHISM. This lavish volume introduces and explains Buddhism in an informative, accessible style. It is illustrated throughout with over 500 photographs of paintings, statues, historical sites, archaeological finds, festivals and rituals. The history of Buddhism is explored in detail, beginning with the life of Gautama Buddha in India. This is followed by a chronological and geographical discussion of the dissemination of the religion into new regions right up to the present day, and an examination of Buddhism's interaction with new cultures and ideas. This book is the perfect introduction to Buddhism for general readers, and a handy resource for students
