0 Reviews
This book contributes to the increasingly important issue of how Buddhists should respond to war, violence and the injustices of the world. The collection of essays in this volume is the most comprehensive on the theme of peace and justice in Buddhist contexts to date. The distinguished contributors equally represent the two major Buddhist traditions, Theravada and Mahayana, and investigate the subject from the rich array of expertise in Buddhist theories and practices. The book is intended for social scientists, peace activists, Buddhist scholars, engaged Buddhists and all people concerned about social conditions. Readers will find this Buddhist wisdom on peace and justice may broaden their understanding of the relationship of self to other. The contributors hope these uplifting messages will lead to the discovery of ways of brining about happiness in this world of conflict and injustice. (
