Booklist Review

Gr. 5-8. Like other books in the Eyewitness series, this introduction to Buddhism presents a series of topics on double-page spreads, each with a paragraph of text and many excellent color photographs, accompanied by lengthy captions in small type. After discussing the beginning of the Buddhist faith in fifth-century India, Wilkinson looks at different forms of Buddhism in Tibet, China,orea, andapan and at Buddhist teachings, practices, temples, festivals, and culture. The highly visual approach lends itself well to introducing subjects such as Buddhist symbols, but it is much less effective in presenting broad topics such as The Cycle of Life, which deals with ceremonies marking passages such as birth, marriage, and death as practiced in different Buddhist communities worldwide. Still, the book provides a visually appealing introduction to Buddhism and is a good source of photos of Buddhist sites, art, and artifacts. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2004 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Eyewitness Buddhism by Philip Wilkinson joins other Eyewitness titles on world faiths. Abundant photos of Buddhist art, artifacts, temples and people amplify brief text introductions to the Life of the Buddha, Tibetan Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, Stupas and Pagodas, and much more.
