    Hawkins, Bradley K., 1950-
    Upper Saddle River, N.J. : Prentice Hall, c1999.

    Appropriate for courses in Introduction to Religion, Comparative Religion, Buddhism, or Religions of the World. This series provides succinct and balanced overviews of the religions of the world. Written in an accessible and informative style, and assuming little or no prior knowledge on the part of the reader, each book gives a basic introduction to the faith-its history, beliefs, and practices-and emphasizes modern developments and the role and impact of the religion in today's world. Buddhism is a concise and readable survey of the history of Buddhism from its roots in India to its spread across South and East Asia and its present day manifestation in Europe and America. Focusing particularly on the modern period, it provides a valuable introduction to the different paths of Buddhism-the beliefs and practices-and looks at the ways in which this religion is meeting the challenges of the modern world.
