Description:
Condition: clean copy, edge worn.Content: The author charts the development of 'Buddhist modernism', examines and analyzes a wide range of popular and scholarly writings produced by Buddhists around the globe. He focuses on ideological and imaginative encounters between Buddhism and modernity, for example in the realms of science, mythology, literature, art psychology and religious pluralism. He shows how certain themes cut across cultural and geographical contexts, and how this form of Buddhism has been created by multiple agents in a variety of times and places. His position is critical but empathetic: while he presents Buddhist modernism as a construction of numerous parties with varying interests, he does not reduce it to a mistake, a misrepresentation, or a fabrication. Rather he presents it as a complex historical process constituted by a variety of responses - sometimes trivial, often profound - to some of the most important concerns of the modern era.300 pages, notes, bibliography, index.

Description:
Condition: clean copy.Content: This book takes a historical approach to an ongoing psychological problem: why do people believe in extraordinary phenomena? It considers the phenomena that have been associated with mesmerism, spiritualism, psychical research and parapsychology. By drawing upon conjuring theory, frame analysis and discourse analysis, it examines how such phenomena have been made convincing in demonstration and report, and then disputed endlessly. It argues that we cannot understand extraordinary beliefs unless we properly consider the events in which people believe, and what people believe about them. And it shows how, in constructing and maintaining particular beliefs about particular phenomena, we have been in the business of constructing ourselves.322 pages, notes, bibliography, index.

Description:
The Green House was put up across the river from the city of Puira at the edge of the desert. The townspeople laughed at the odd-looking green structure and the stranger who had come into the town to build it. But when the Green House was finished its first tenants had arrived, the citizens of Puira stopped laughing. For young girls looking for an easier life and the men of Puira drowning in the monotony and misery of their day-to-day existence, the Green House became a night-time pleasure orais in the desert. For the religious and moral forces and the indignant matrols of Puira, the Green House became the very incarnation of the Devil - an evil that had to be destroyed at any cost.
