Long DescriptionWith such bestsellers as A History of God and Islam , Karen Armstrong has consistently delivered ?penetrating, readable, and prescient? ( The New York Times ) works that have lucidly engaged a wide range of religions and religious issues. In Buddha she turns to a figure whose thought is still reverberating throughout the world 2,500 years after his death. Many know the Buddha only from seeing countless serene, iconic images. But what of the man himself and the world he lived in? What did he actually do in his roughly eighty years on earth that spawned one of the greatest religions in world history? Armstrong tackles these questions and more by examining the life and times of the Buddha in this engrossing philosophical biography. Against the tumultuous cultural background of his world, she blends history, philosophy, mythology, and biography to create a compelling and illuminating portrait of a man whose awakening continues to inspire millions.

We completed the upgrade that changed the way we store company data and connect it to the product details. This required a set major database changes and some minor but important web site changes.

Over the next couple weeks we will roll out various other web site upgrades that make use of these new changes and provide you with better access to our data.
