CORRECTION> Contemporary Buddhism

Dear Colleagues,

Yesterday's posting of five recent articles in Contemporary Buddhism as constituting Vol. 19-1 was made in error. The forthcoming issue will be a long-planned special on Vedanā with guest editors, and therefore will not include two of the articles mentioned in the announcement. The proper release information on these articles will be clarified when publication is finalized.

My apologies to Andrew Skilton and the editors of Contemporary Buddhism for this error.
