Aimed at students of religion and philosophy, this text traces the permutations of Buddhist thought over time. Thomas (affiliation not cited) begins with a discussion of the ascetic ideal. Other topics include fundamental concepts such as karma, regional variations in the religion's tenets, and connections between Buddhism and modern thought. The volume is an unabridged republication of the 1959 printing of the second edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
