Abstract

406 ASIAN PERSPECTIVES � 2019 � 58(2) Ray has written a volume introducing the Asian readers without prior knowledge of critical questions that orient modern research South Asia, the book will be more difficult on ancient South Asian Buddhism while also and will likely require the occasional internet covering key archaeological sites with detail search on the name of a South Asian dynasty and nuance. Ray also provides extensive or region. Given its length and clarity, Ray’s citations and references to further readings Archaeology and Buddhism in South Asia that allow anyone so inclined to explore the would make an excellent supplemental text subject far more deeply. That she has done all in undergraduate courses in South Asian of this in less than 50,000 words is remarkable. history and religions. The one hesitation I have is that I am not sure if Archaeology and Buddhism in South Asia could be easily understood by readers with no prior REFERENCE CITED knowledge of South Asian history and geo- graphy. This book seems to be written with a RAY,HIMANSHU PRABHA 1986 Monastery and Guild: Commerce Under South Asian audience in mind, that is, readers the Satavahanas.
