Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Swearer (Buddhist studies and world religions, Harvard Divinity School) draws on the work of other scholars of course, but his account of Theravada Buddhism primarily reflects his own experience living and teaching in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Laos. He covers the popular tradition, Buddhism and the state, and Buddhism and modernization. The last section has been revised most thoroughly to account for economic, political, and social changes in the region since he wrote the 1995 first edition.

Synopsis:

A wide-ranging, readable account of the Theravada Buddhist thought and practice in the Southeast Asian societies of Thailand, Myanmar (Burma), Laos, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka.
