The Norton Anthology of World Religions

Buddhism: Buddhism
  • By Donald S. Lopez, Jack Miles
$24.99
($29.95)
Product Description

he Norton Anthology of World Religions offers a beautifully designed library of more than 1,000 primary texts, accompanied by headnotes, annotations, glossaries, maps, illustrations, chronologies, and a dazzling general introduction by Pulitzer Prize winner Jack Miles. This collection "will unsettle some current certainties about the nature of faith and, in so doing, may help its readers arrive at a nuanced and accurate perception of our predicament in this dangerously polarized world" (Karen Armstrong, New York Times).

Unprecedented in scope and approach, The Norton Anthology of World Religions: Buddhism brings together over 100 substantial selections from the fifth century B.C.E. to the present day, organized by country to mirror the spread of Buddhism from India to China, Korea, Japan, Tibet, and the United States. The volume features Jack Miles's illuminating General Introduction--"How the West Learned to Compare Religions"--as well as Donald S. Lopez, Jr.'s "In the World of the Buddha," a lively primer on the history and core tenets of Buddhism.
