CONZE, Edward


CONZE, Edward
(1904-?)
   English born, German Communist who fled Nazi Germany to take refuge in England in 1933 where he converted to BUDDHISM and became the greatest interpreter of Buddhism to the West. His book Buddhism
   Its Essence and Development (1951) is the best single introduction to Buddhism while his Buddhist Thought in India (1962) remains an undervalued classic. His autobiography The Memoirs of a Modern Gnostic (1979) is entertaining reading for anyone wishing to understand modern religious thought.
