This book probes the origins of the practice of nonviolence in early India and traces its path within the Jaina, Hindu, and Buddhist traditions, including its impact on East Asian Cultures. It then turns to a variety of contemporary issues relating to this topic such as: vegetarianism, animal and environmental protection, and the cultivation of religious tolerance.

User Review  - Josh - Goodreads

A great summary of some of the earliest non-violent traditions in the world. I found the information on Jainism helpful, as there are surprisingly few resources available on it on the web. Read full review
