Buddhism: Its Essence & Development
By Edward Conze
This new paper edition is a reprint of the first comprehensive English-language book on Buddhism. Based on the authors lectures delivered at St. Peter's Hall, Oxford, the book covers the whole range of Buddhist thought including spirituality, doctrine and basic assumptions. It also seeks to show how Buddhist teachings are identical to others around the world, teachings which may be called "mystical." A pull-out timeline featuring important authors, works and schools of thought is included.
