Engaged Buddhist leaders make some of the most important contributions in the Buddhist world to thinking about issues in political theory, human rights, nonviolence, and social justice. ""Being Benevolence"" provides for the first time a rich overview of the main ideas and arguments of prominent Engaged Buddhist thinkers and activists on a variety of questions: what kind of political system should modern Asian states have? What are the pros and cons of Western ""liberalism""? Can Buddhism support the idea of human rights? Can there ever be a nonviolent nation-state?
