Description About the author Contents
"Buddhists have suffered immeasurably from the brutality and injustice of the modern world; from this crucible has emerged a remarkable generation of Buddhist leadership intently focused on peace building. This volume makes available--for the first time in one place--first-person statements of the ideas and work of such eminent Buddhist leaders as H.H. the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Maha Ghosananda, A.T. Ariyaratne, Daisaku Ikeda, Shih Cheng-yen, Sulak Sivaraksa, And Robert Aitken: a cornucopia of visionary and creative social engagement." --Sallie B. King, Professor of Religion, James Madison University, and co-editor of Engaged Buddhism: Buddhist Liberation Movements in Asia.

"This book is a welcome and highly readable addition to the growing literature on religiously inspired efforts toward world peace. It enlarges and deepens the discussion by asking not only the obvious questions about responsibility and engagement but also the seldom asked and uncomfortable questions about the role of the community and of the individual."--Harvey Cox, Victor S. Thomas Professor of Divinity, Harvard Divinity School.

"This diverse collection of essays will be useful for courses in peace studies, especially those exploring the complex but crucial issues surrounding the role of religion, spirituality, moral behavior, and individual responsibility in creating and strengthening cultures of peace."--Paul Joseph, Professor of Sociology, Tufts University, and Chair, Peace Studies Association.

"This marvelous and inspiring book is like the strong timber found in old bridge spans. may each of us, like the friends in this book, be a strong and joyful bridge that helps numberless beings and communities find their way to peace."--from the foreword by Joan Halifax Roshi, Head Teacher, Upaya Zen Center David W. Chappell, a scholar of Chinese Buddhism, is graduate chair of the Department of Religion at the University of Hawaii.
