Reviews

'A pleasure to read this fascinating volume - Gay Watson writes very passionately. Watson's text is remarkable for its richness and density and the easy way a multitude of views and practices is given space to live and breathe together. The arguments are clearly presented and the writer bears the reader in mind at all times to be very warmly welcomed as useful contribution to an inter-cultural work-in-progress.' - James Low, The Middle Way
