Setting Out on the Great Way - Essays on Early Mahāyāna Buddhism - Paul Harrison

Russell Webb [+-]
Independent Scholar
Russell Webb has been active since the 1960s as a member and office-holder of the British Mahābodhi Society and the London Buddhist Association. He has published papers on various aspects of Buddhism, particularly on the study of Buddhism in the West, and was founding editor of the Buddhist Studies Review, which in 1998 became the official organ of the United Kingdom Association of Buddhist Studies.

Description

If and when the definitive history of Buddhism in the United Kingdom is written, space should be allocated to an unassuming yet highly competent translator of key Buddhist texts. The author's late wife Sara Boin- Webb – to use her professional surname – possessed the necessary background training and ability to go beyond the world of academia and reach those whose understanding of Buddhism would be enriched by the revelation of practical and philosophical writings hitherto inaccessible to all but the cognoscenti.
