If You Meet The Buddha On The Road
Buddhism, Politics, And Violence
de Michael (Associate Professor Of Religious Studies, Youngstown State University) Jerryson
Sobre o livro
Drawing on Buddhist treatments of violence, this book explores Buddhist invocation, support, or justification of war, conflict, state violence, and gender discrimination. In addition, it examines the ways in which Buddhists address violence as military chaplains, cope with violence in a conflict zone, and serve as witnesses of blasphemy to Buddhism.
