Thurman, Robert
[V2607] Buddhism: Indo-Tibetan

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

If you want a solid introduction to Indian Religions, take Professor McDermott. Then, if you want more, you can take Thurman, who will elaborate on certain aspects of Buddhism. By taking McDermott first, Thurman's lack of context and structure will be mitigated, and you'll be able to appreciate what he does say when he actually decides to teach.
