Contact for Charles Patton (independent scholar of Chinese and related Buddhist systems)

Hi

I would like to ask Charles Patton about the copyright status of some of his translations of Buddhist texts from Chinese (our library wants to include printed versions and we need copyright permission to do this). Can anyone let me know an email address.

Thanks in advance.

QUERY> Publications on Buddhist Theosophical Society and internal Maha Bodhi Society politics? (Cox)

Dear Colleagues,

I'm doing some work on the Buddhist Theosophical Society in Ceylon and the internal politics of the Maha Bodhi Society internationally (including India, Burma and the UK). I'm finding a surprising dearth of material and wonder if I am missing an obvious body of research?

Any pointers to existing publications in the area, no matter how apparently obvious, would be very welcome!

Many thanks,

Laurence Cox
