“Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism” on sale from November 24

bookjacketA number of Buddhism-specific dictionaries have been published over the years, but they have all been limited in scope to one language (such as Tibetan) or one tradition (Zen, for example).  The 1304-page Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism, however, written and edited by Robert E. Buswell, Jr., and Donald S. Lopez, Jr., includes entries from six canonical languages (Sanskrit, Pali, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean), as well as selected terms and names in Thai, Burmese, Vietnamese, Lao, Khmer, Sinhalese, Newar, and Mongolian.
