AbstractAction Dharma charts the emergence of a new chapter in an ancient faith--the rise of social service and political activism in Buddhist Asia and the West. Fourteen new essays treat the historical origins, global range,teachings and practices, and leaders and organizations that make up the latest turning of the Dharma. Environmentalism and peace walks through the minefields of Southeast Asia, the future of the 'untouchables' of Japan,and outreach to minorities and inmates of the criminal justice system in the West are some of the challenging topics considered.
