Review quote

"Manages to give a flavor of the variety 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 indexcertainly gave me room for optimism--I found it rewarding also to find areas new to me addressed in accessibel and engaging ways."--Journal of Global Buddhism "Manages to give a flavor of the variety 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.
