Buddhism in East Asia

Sukumar Dutt (Author)
Synopsis Buddhism in East Asia does not pretend to be the outcome of fundamental research. Its main purpose is to collate, arrange and evaluate facts which specialists in the field have brought to light-and in such a way as to hold the general reader. There is little of critical apparatus and scholarly dissertation to confound him. In lively fashion and with well-chosen illustrations to support his interest, the book takes him through a fascinating journey in time and space, through Ceylon, Burma, Siam, Cambodia, Vietnam, Burma, Siam, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Chinese Turkestan, Japan and Tibet; it appraises the role and place of Buddhism in the different stages of their evolution in a broad and colourful sweep.

About the author

Sukumar Dutt

Dr. Sukumar Dutt was born in 1891 at Barisal (now in Bangladesh). He specialized during his academic career in English literature in which he held a doctorate. But his interest in Buddhism and ancient Indian history had been roused early in life by his uncle the late Aswini Kumar Dutt, a famous nationalist leader of Bengal of the first three decades of this century. Dr. Dutt had over many years carried on studies in this line and was recognized as one of the most accomplished scholars of Buddhism in this country. He was a Senior Research Fellow of the University of Delhi. His published works are The Buddha and Five After-centuries, Buddhist Monks and Monasteries of India: Their History and their Contribution to Indian Culture; Buddhism in History and Culture of East Asian People; Mahaparinirbaner Katha (in Bengali). He was translating Bangalier Itihas by Prof. Niharranjan Ray when he died on April 9, 1970.
