In this wide-ranging new study, Bristol University's Pascale Engelmajer seeks to relocate Buddhism in its historical and global context. This important new thinking is grounded in the stories of four people who are practising Buddhism around the world in very different ways. By celebrating the diversity of Buddhism, Dr Engelmajer tells a story that is often lost beneath Western talk (and confusion) about Feng Shui, yoga, and the Dalai Lama.
