I am writing to announce the publication of the new issue of Buddhist Studies Review, 38.1. This issue has been guest edited by Margo Kitts and Mark Juergensmeyer and is a tribute to Michael Jerryson and his work on Buddhism and violence. Most of you, by now, will have heard the sad news of Michael’s passing earlier this month. As Mark Juergensmeyer notes, in his obituary for Michael, Michael was aware of this guest edited tribute to him, and was able to read and comment on the papers prior to his death.
