This is a good historical overview of Buddhist thought, from its origin and how it evolved subsequently in India, China and Japan. The editors mainly quote from the primary sources of the important and influential Buddhist writings while giving their historical and social context. This is an accessible and good starting point and reference material if you are interested in studying Buddhism. ( )
