The author focuses his analysis on Theravada Buddhism in Southeast Asia as a dynamic, complex system of thought and practice imbedded in the respective cultures, societies, and histories of Burma Myanmar , Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka. The book discusses three distinct but interrelated aspects of this system: the popular tradition in terms of paradigms of ideal action, rituals, festivals, and rites of passage; Buddhism as civic religion in terms of King Asoka as the paradigmatic Buddhist monarch, cosmology and kingship, and Buddhism and the modern nation state; and modern transformations of the tradition in terms of the changing roles of the monk and the laity, modern reform movements, and Buddhism in the West.

In three sections, it examines popular belief and practice; Buddhism and government; and Buddhism's adaptation to the modern world. Overall, the book is academic in tone and detail, and contains lots of religion studies jargon.
I found the first section of limited usefulness and unsurprising conclusions, however the second and third sections provided interesting historical background. This book was a drier introduction to SE Asian Buddhism than I was looking for, but contained lots of information and was a useful read overall.
