DESCRIPTION

Selected as one of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles (2000), Engaged Buddhism in the West is founded on the belief that genuine spiritual practice requires an active involvement in society. This book illuminates the evolution of this newest chapter in the Buddhist tradition including its history, leadership, and teachings, and it addresses issues such as violence and peace, race and gender, homelessness, prisons, and the environment. Eighteen new studies explore the activism of renowned leaders and organizations, such as Thich Nhat Hanh, Bernard Glassman, Joanna Macy, the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, the Free Tibet Movement, and the emergence of a new Buddhism in North America, Europe, South Africa, and Australia.
