Most Buddhists live in Asia, although Buddhism is growing rapidly elsewhere. More than 85% of the population in Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand are Buddhists, as are more than 70% of people in Cambodia, Laos and Japan.

Buddhism is part of the World Religions Series of books exploring the major religions of our world today. Each title looks first a one person's experience, and then examines the facts, arguments, and opinions from around the globe. Special debate panels, supported by a wealth of resource material, invite the reader to discuss the issues that are currently facing our world.

Each book in the World Religions Series contains a history of the religion, key celebrations, and up-to-the-minute facts. The series addresses how each religion faces the challenges of today's ever-changing world and how the religion itself has to change and adapt. Children have the opportunity to learn the belief systems of their own and other groups in a way that is engaging and easy to understand.

Attractively illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this book is suitable for ages 8 to 14.

Price and availability subject to change. Shipping and applicable taxes extra.
