There is a recent title by Wilhelm Halbfass (published in a
popular German series) that may be helpful:

Halbfass, Wilhelm: Karma und Wiedergeburt im indischen Denken. -
Kreuzlingen : Diederichs (Hugendubel), 2000. - 344 S. -
(Diederichs Gelbe Reihe ; 161)
ISBN 3-89631-385-1
EUR 15,50

Hope it helps
