Blurb: Buddhism influenced American culture since the 1830s. Recently, it has blossomed into a full-fledged American religion. It consists of 3 groups: an Asian immigrant population, native-born converts, and earlier Asian American Buddhists. This book discusses one of America’s most vital new religions.
