If You Meet the Buddha on the Road : Buddhism, Politics, and Violence Hardback

Description

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.
