Description
 
This is the first scholarly treatment of the emergence of American Buddhist Studies as a significant research field. The academic study of Buddhism in America--including the religions of Asian immigrants and of American-born converts--is barely twenty years old, dating from the works of Charles Prebish and Emma McCoy Layman in the 1970s. A great deal has since then, prompted by new waves of refugees from Southeast Asia and Tibet and by the rising popularity of Buddhist practices in the West.
