Buddhist Experience in America by Diane Morgan

Morgan (religion and philosophy, Wilson College, Pennsylvania) begins by describing how Buddhism first came to America in the 19th century and set the stage for its latest developments. Then she summarizes briefly the history and basic tenets of the religion and its major branches in Asia and America, before turning to contemporary American Buddhism as the Third Turning of the Wheel. She includes biographical sketches, a glossary without pronunciation guides, research questions and projects, and a list of resources. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
