Buddhism in East Asia does not pretend to be the outcome of "fundamental research". Its main purpose is to collate, arrange and evaluate facts which specia;lists in the field have brought to light-and in such a way as to hold the general reader. There is little of critical apperatus and scholarly dissertation to confound him. In lively fashion, and with well chosen illustrations to support his interest, the book takes him through a fascinating journey in time and space, through Ceylone, Burma, Siam, Combodia, Vetnam, China, Japan, Tibet; it appraises the role and place of Buddhism in the diferent stages if their evolution in a board and colourful sweep.
