The historical foundations of this important world religion, including the life and teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, the historical Buddha, are explored. The authors examine the spread of Buddhism into Central Asia, and its diversification as it absorbed elements of the local religions. Numerous illustrations in both color and black-and-white depict objects relating to Buddhism as well as scenes of contemporary Buddhist life.
