Description

NEW BOOK> Theravada Buddhism in Colonial Contexts

Dear colleagues,

I'm very pleased to announce the publication of a volume that I edited, Theravada Buddhism in Colonial Contexts (Routledge 2018).  The book brings together ten scholars talking about the experiences of colonialism across the Theravada world from the nineteenth century up to the present.

Best,
