Library Journal Review

First published in 1894, this is the book that first introduced many Westerners to Buddhism; it remains a useful overview of the life and teachings of the Buddha. Carus, an independent philosopher who studied and published on Eastern and Western philosophy, was instrumental in raising Western awareness of Buddhism at the turn of the century.
