Publisher's Summary

"Understanding Buddhism is one of the most beautiful and least-known books on Buddhism in English, a series of fresh, often stunningly original, essays." (Huston Smith and Philip Novak, Buddhism: A Concise Introduction)
"Understanding Buddhism is at once historical, philosophical, dialogic, and humanistic. Jacobson's approach is profoundly intercultural and universal." (Kenneth K. Inada)
The book is published by Southern Illinois University Press.

Critic Reviews

Understanding Buddhism is an extremely well organized study, reflecting clear thinking and lucid style. The scholarly approach is outstanding. The width and depth of the author's knowledge of both Western and Buddhist traditional ideas are far beyond what is often presented as a comparative study.” (Herbert Guenther)
