The Routledge Encyclopedia of Buddhism is a complete up-to-date one-volume desk reference, documenting the history, doctrines, schools, rituals, sacred places, basic ideas and concepts, and globalization of the entire Buddhist tradition. In addition, it provides bibliographic references to the leading scholarship by scholar from around the world. As such, it is an indispensable tool for students, teachers, and researchers from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds, as well as to the general reader.
The Encyclopedia is characterized by its wide range of contents, primary sources, and both the depth and quality of its entries. It allows its readers to quickly access information on all topics included in the volume.
It covers the study of Buddhism, Buddhist canons and literature, Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, Nikaya Buddhism, Mahayana Buddhism, Vajrayana Buddhism, Buddhist meditational systems, sacred places in Buddhism, practices and rituals, biographies of famous Buddhists (including ideal types), Buddhist ethics, Buddhist art(s), engaged Buddhism, Buddhism and technology, women in Buddhism, Buddhism in India, South and Southeast Asia, Tibet, China, Korea, Japan, and Buddhism in the Western World.
All readers of the Encyclopedia will benefit from a scholarly but readable work that lends itself to being approached from almost any starting point, and guides the reader to an increased knowledge of Buddhism through very easy access to all relevant materials.

Recenzii

'It is an excellent advocate for both reference publishing and for the belief system it represents.' - Reference Reviews
'This work is a crucial source for specialists... Highly recommended.' --G.J. Reece, American University, Choice
'It's English-lanuguage approach acknowledges the global impact Buddism has had in recent decades, so it is an excellent advocate for both reference publishing and for the belief system it represents. An extensive list of further reading at the end provides a good basis for research. There is also a comprehensive analytical index' -- Reference Reviews
I highly recommend Encyclopedia of Buddhism for purchase by university and seminary libraries. This encyclopedia would be very useful both to those with little or no knowledge of Buddhism and to those who know more about the religion. This book comes as close as possible to meeting its aim of providing an all-encompassing single-volume reference source. -- Christine Pesche, Theological Librarianship
