Theravada Buddhism, Paperback (June 2006)
"Theravada Buddhism" is widely recognised as the classic introduction to the branch of Buddhism found in Sri Lanka and parts of South East Asia.

Buddhist Daily Ritual, Hardback (February 2002)

World of Buddhism, Paperback (September 1991)
Describes the teachings of the Buddha, looks at Buddhism in India, Burma, Thailand, China, Korea, and Japan, and looks at Buddhist history, sects, shrines, and temples.
Buddhism Transformed, Paperback (October 1990)» View all books by Richard F. Gombrich
As the Sinhalas themselves perceive it, Buddhism proper has always shared the religious arena with a spirit religion. While Buddhism concerns salvation, the spirit religion focuses on worldly welfare. This work describes and analyzes the changes that have profoundly altered the character of Sinhala religion in both areas.
