by Michael Carrithers - £7.99  Oxford University Press (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780192854537 | ISBN 10: 0192854534

Michael Carrithers guides us through the complex and sometimes conflicting information that Buddhist texts give about the life and teaching of the Buddha. He discusses the social and political background of India in the Buddha's time, and traces the development of his thought. He also assesses the rapid and widespread assimilation of Buddhism and its contemporary relevance.
