    Description
    Buddhism has influenced American culture since the American Transcendentalist movement in the 1830s and '40s; only recntly, however, has this transplanted philosophy begun to blossom into a full-fledged American religion. Seager offers a perceptive and engaging portrait of the communities, institutions, practices, and individuals that are integral to the contemporary Buddhist landscape, including six profiles of Buddhist traditions exported to the United States from Japan, Tibet, Southeast Asia, and elsewhere. The book also considers Americanization and recent developments in gender equity, progressive social change, and intra-Buddhist and interreligious dialogue.
