Despite karma now being a widely-known term, its connotations of rebirth and retribution have a complex genesis. Bronkhorst (Sanskrit and Indian studies, U. of Lausanne, Switzerland) presents an accessible entree into the historical, religious, and cultural roots, implications, and early controversies over the concept in Buddhist, Jain, and Brahman thought. He also discusses parallels with Christian ideas of God's retribution. The book includes suggested further reading. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
