The book from the journal from the conference from the research…

This July Routledge will publish A Buddhist crossroads: pioneer western Buddhists and Asian networks 1860-1960, edited by Brian Bocking, Phibul Choompolpaisal, Laurence Cox and Alicia Turner – initially in hardback. The book is a reprint of the special issue of Contemporary Buddhism of the same name, drawing on papers presented at the conference Southeast Asia as Buddhist crossroads.

The purpose of these “special issue as book” publications is of course to make the material available to those who do not have a university subscription to the journal. The book will come out in paperback if sales justify it, so if you are able to order a hardback copy for your library you will be making it easier for others to have access to an affordable version. Thanks!
