REBIRTH by Roger R. Jackson

by: Roger R Jackson

"Roger Jackson’s Rebirth traces the history of Buddhist ideas about reincarnation across the Buddhist world from ancient times to the present. This is the definitive work on the topic. No other work matches it in terms of breadth and depth. Written in lively and accessible prose, and evincing Jackson’s tremendous erudition on every page, Rebirth is a major contribution to the study of Buddhism and the history of religions.”—José I. Cabezón, Dalai Lama Professor of Tibetan Buddhism and Cultural Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara
