Seven Wonders of the Buddhist World
Bettany Hughes visits seven places important to the history and contemporary practice of Buddhism and meets Buddhists who explain concepts important to the belief system, including dharma, karma, samsara, Zen and nirvana. Her journey takes her to ancient sites including Angkor Wat in Cambodia and the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal, as well as more recent constructions such as the giant Tian Tan Buddha in Hong Kong.

I will be interested to see what you make of it.

Since their website has been down for months, I assumed it was just being rebuilt, but the company has closed down since last August.
Today, I decided to go to Stanley Road after my almsround to see what had happened to it, and found that the premises are available for let.
An Internet search found this old thread on our sister site. I contacted Wisdom Publications in the US, and they directed me to Publishers Group UK who seem to sell only a few titles like: In the Buddha's Words, Mindfulness in Plain English, and A Manual of Insight.
