Most introductions to Buddhism look at the life of the Buddha, and the practice of Buddhism in the West today. But this is rather like publishing a book on Christianity, and only mentioning Jesus and the Church of England. In this wide-ranging new study, Bristol University's Pascale Engelmajer seeks to relocate Buddhism in its historical and global context. This important new thinking is grounded in the stories of four people who are practising Buddhism around the world in very different ways. By celebrating the diversity of Buddhism, Dr Engelmajer tells a story that is often lost beneath Western talk (and confusion) about Feng Shui, yoga, and the Dalai Lama.
