Description: Now in a second edition, this highly accessible text provides a comprehensive and engaging introduction to Eastern religions. It closely examines the major Eastern religious traditions--Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Buddhism. It also covers East Asian religions including Confucianism, Taoism, Shintoism, and the specific religions of Vietnam and Korea. A chapter on Asia and Pacific Horizons discusses the religions of such indigenous peoples as the Maoris of New Zealand, the Australian indigenes, and the Cargo Cults of the South Pacific. Each tradition is explored in depth--from its origins, through its development, to its meaning and practice in today's society. The text concludes with a definitive review of theories of the nature of religion. World Religions: Eastern Traditions, 2/e combines a historically descriptive perspective with timelines, key terms, maps, text boxes, study questions, and annotated suggestions for further reading. This new edition includes a more lucid introduction; a second color and more maps; new study questions; and a new annotated bibliography. Ideal for undergraduate courses in Eastern religions, World Religions: Eastern Traditions, 2/e can also be used with its companion volume, World Religions: Western Traditions, 2/e, in a general course on world religions.
