About the Author:

Madhu Bazaz Wangu has taught at the University of Pittsburgh, where she earned a Ph.D. in religious studies. She is the winner of several awards for her work as a freelance artist and has also taught classes in the Hindi language.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-12-- These two titles follow the pattern of other titles in this series, and provide a detailed and quite comprehensive discussion of the religion and its influence on culture and history. The Hooblers show how the beliefs and writings of Confucius and his followers were codified into elaborate rules and rituals throughout Chinese history and how Confucius became defied by many in the process. They discussthe different schools of thought and practice, and their spread into other Eastern countries, particularly Japan and Korea. Finally, the authors describe how Mao and the communist regime set out to destroy both the religion's influence and its heritage. Wangu begins with an introduction to Buddhism today, discussing its ability to coexist and comingle with other religions in the East. He then describes Buddha's life; how the religion spread beyond India's borders; its multiple varieties; its effect on literature and the arts; and its rites, festivals, and religious observances. Both titles are illustrated with black-and-white reproductions and photographs. They are clearly written, but the amount of detail may overwhelm students with no background in the subjects. --Jane Gardner Connor, South Carolina State Library, Columbia
