Synopsis

The Experience of Buddhism Sources and Interpretations by John S. Strong

Part of the Religious Life in History Series, this comprehensive anthology provides translations of texts illustrative of Buddhist philosophy and doctrine as well as descriptive, concrete accounts of Buddhist practices, rituals, and experiences. Author John Strong gives careful consideration to many key aspects of the religion in a wide range of geographic and cultural arenas, from Asia to the United States, and gives students a sense of Buddhism's historical evolution in each area. In addition, this new edition of THE EXPERIENCE OF BUDDHISM uniquely offers students a list of pertinent bibliographic suggestions after each reading, giving them the opportunity to both enhance their understanding of the material and streamline their research and paper-writing process.

Reviews

Oliver Freiberger, University of Texas, Austin: Frankly, I would be having a hard time trying to think of ways to improve the book. It is an excellent collection that I have used in several classes. The selection and length of the passages, as well as Strong's short but excellent commentaries are just fine as they are.
