Product Details

Praise

“Heroic in scope and of undeniable historic importance.”—Los Angeles Times

“This fascinating book delivers more than it promises. It takes the reader from the origins of Buddhism right up to the immediate past, through Buddhism’s growth and spread in Asia to the personalities that opened it up to the West and those that brought it to America as well as those who were affected by Buddhism or nurtured it here. Fields possesses a clear style and infectious enthusiasm for his subject.”—Library Journal

“The definitive treatment of the impact of Buddhism on American thought.”—Roderick Frazier Nash, Professor of History & Environmental Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara

“I found this engaging book literally crammed with the sort of lively and accurate information which I had for years been longing to find assembled. The leading characters emerge with a quality of independence and individuation that certainly dispels any stereotype of the Buddhist practitioner, teacher, or layman.”—Nancy Wilson Ross, The Washington Post
