AbstractThis book covers four important areas within Buddhist Studies. Vinaya Studies and Ethics, the history of Buddhist schools, Western Buddhism, and Inter-religious dialogue. These are the main areas which Charles S. Prebish has either inaugurated or helped to define; and his significant professional achievements are celebrated within this volume.

The geographical and historical scope of the essays in this collection ranges from ancient India to modern America, and includes contributions by well-known international scholars. The contributors discuss a variety of academic disciplines including philosophy, psychology, history, feminism, and sociology. Buddhist Studies from India to America will be of interest to scholars whose interests embrace either ancient or modern aspects of the Buddhist tradition.
