Buddhist warfare( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Buddhism has played a significant role in the current global rise in religious nationalism and violence, but the violent aspects of Buddhist tradition have been neglected in the outpouring of academic analyses and case studies of this disturbing trend. This book offers eight essays examining the dark side of a tradition often regarded as the religion of peace."--Jacket
The Oxford handbook of religion and violence( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violence has played a part in the religious imagination, from symbols and myths to legendary battles, from colossal wars to the theater of terrorism. The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Violence surveys intersections between religion and violence throughout history and around the world. Forty original essays in this volume include overviews of major religious traditions, showing how violence is justified within the literary and theological foundations of the tradition, how it is used symbolically and in ritual practice, and how social acts of violence and warfare have been justified by religious ideas. The essays also examine patterns and themes relating to religious violence, such as sacrifice and martyrdom, which are explored in cross-disciplinary or regional analyses; and offer major analytic approaches, from literary to social scientific studies. Contributors to this volume, thinkers who are forging new directions in theory and analysis related to religion and violence, provide novel insights

The Oxford handbook of contemporary Buddhism( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As an incredibly diverse religious system, Buddhism is constantly changing. The Oxford Handbook of Contemporary Buddhism offers a comprehensive collection of work by leading scholars in the field that tracks these changes up to the present day. Taken together, the book provides a blueprint to understanding Buddhism's past and uses it to explore the ways in which Buddhism has transformed in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The volume contains 41 essays, divided into two sections. The essays in the first section examine the historical development of Buddhist traditions throughout the world. These chapters cover familiar settings like India, Japan, and Tibet as well as the less well-known countries of Vietnam, Bhutan, and the regions of Latin America, Africa, and Oceania. Focusing on changes within countries and transnationally, this section also contains chapters that focus explicitly on globalization, such as Buddhist international organizations and diasporic communities. The second section tracks the relationship between Buddhist traditions and particular themes. These chapters review Buddhist interactions with contemporary topics such as violence and peacebuilding, and ecology, as well as Buddhist influences in areas such as medicine and science. Offering coverage that is both expansive and detailed, The Oxford Handbook of Contemporary Buddhism delves into some of the most debated and contested areas within Buddhist Studies today."--

After presenting a valuable socio-historical survey of the Malay world before, during, and after colonization, the author focuses in on contemporary social dynamics, including the emergence of Muslim women competing at the international level. Through surveys and interviews conducted at the Twenty-Second South East Asian Games in Hanoi, she captures the athletes' experiences and perspectives as they compete, often under rules that conflict with Islamic practice."--Jacket

Sacred fury, sacred duty : Buddhist monks in southern Thailand by Michael K Jerryson( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thai soldiers and police have also militarized Buddhist monastaries; monastic courtyards are converted into barracks, and sleeping quarters become military headquarters. Monks continue about their daily routines, performing their ceremonies and accepting donations, while soldiers and police work their counterterrorist strategies meters away. This spatial collapsing of religious and national identifications further ostracizes Malay Muslims from Thai society and its normative identity, which is Thai Buddhism itself
