Asoka, Hinduism and Buddhism

I am linking here a review of a book:  Ashoka:  The Search for India’s Lost Emperor by Charles Allen [reviewed by Burjor Avari].

Although a book review, this article is actually what is called a review essay and gives good detailed information not only on the long historiography of Hinduism and Buddhism in India, it also provides a good overview of that history and in particular the role of this remarkable ruler, Ashoka.
