The author's work in this pocket-sized essay makes a quality contribution to the study of the Theravāda usage of the word Arahant, a truly 'Worthy One', including a review of the etymology of the word and some references to non-Buddhist usages of the word. In only 24 pages this essay conveys the general characteristics, drawing from the Pāli canon as well as from other scholars, of what precisely an Arahant means.
"The focus of this effort is to review the various references to Arahants and the attainment of Arahantship which can be found in the Theravāda tradition, suttas and scholarly studies. Economy of time and space can be hopefully considered a help to the reader in affording him a fairly facile review of the Arahant problem in a brief essay." (Dunnington)
