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
