About the Author:

Susan M. Darlington is Professor of Anthropology and Asian Studies at Hampshire College.

Review:

“...this insightfully innovative study deserves wide readership. Darlington skillfully describes and analyzes a fascinating element of socially engaged Buddhism while succinctly synthesizing important historical particulars that contextualize her narrative. The effectiveness of Darlington’s historical and ethnographic approach in this book charts an important methodological path for future scholars of engaged Buddhist studies to follow while exploring more of the field’s uncharted territory.” ― Journal of Asian Studies

“An excellent book for anyone concerned with religion and environment ... Essential.” ― CHOICE
