In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Buddhism in Asia was transformed by the impact of colonial modernity and new technologies and began to spread in earnest to the West. Transnational networking among Asian Buddhists and early western converts engendered pioneering attempts to develop new kinds of Buddhism for a globalized world, in ways not controlled by any single sect or region. Drawing on new research by scholars worldwide, this book brings together some of the most extraordinary episodes and personalities of a period of almost a century from 1860-1960. Examples include Indian intellectuals who saw Buddhism as a homegrown path for a modern post-colonial future, poor whites 'going native' as Asian monks, a Brooklyn-born monk who sought to convert Mussolini, and the failed 1950s attempt to train British monks to establish a Thai sangha in Britain. Some of these stories represent creative failures, paths not taken, which may show us alternative possibilities for a more diverse Buddhism in a world dominated by religious nationalisms. Other pioneers paved the way for the mainstreaming of new forms of Buddhism in later decades, in time for the post-1960s takeoff of 'global Buddhism'.
This book was originally published as a special issue of Contemporary Buddhism.
This groundbreaking work redefines traditional ideas of what a aï¿½textaï¿½ should be incorporating new kinds of multimodal texts to revitalize instruction within and across disciplines. The authors provide examples of innovative representations to aid learning in earth science language arts mathematics and social studies classrooms. Each chapter focuses on a specific content area outlining learning goals relevant national standards types of representation that enrich learning and teaching strategies for developing critical literacy specific to that discipline. Reading and Representing Across the Content Areas is a powerful application of creative multimodal teaching principles for meeting challenging standards.
How do you say good-bye to your grandma? To your friends on the phone? To your dog? Not all good-byes are alike. But each is important in its own way. Saying good-bye is part of saying hello!
In the course of his career spanning over six decades, George A Olah, winner of the 1994 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, has been exceedingly prolific. He has published some 1500 scientific papers and 25 books and holds more than 150 patents. The third volume of his selected papers contains some 140 scientific publications, lectures and articles of the sixth decade of his research. He shares inter alia his vision and pioneering work to help the development of a new field to replace fossil fuels through a viable chemical carbon cycle. It is based on chemical recycling of carbon dioxide to methanol as the basis of the "Methanol Economy" capable of substituting fossil fuels and as a means of energy storage, production of transportation fuels, and raw materials for essential chemicals.This volume will also serve as a helpful reference guide for researchers working in the areas of energy, fuels, synthetic or organometallic chemistry, as well as mechanistic studies.
