Given the challenges of the environmental crisis, Buddhism's teaching of the interrelatedness of all life forms may be critical to the recovery of human reprocity with nature. In this work, 20 religionists and environmentalists examine Buddhism's understanding of the intricate web of life. In noting the cultural diversity of Buddhism, they highlight aspects of the tradition which may help formulate effective environmental ethics, citing examples from both Asia and the United States of socially engaged Buddhist projects to protect the environment. The authors explore theoretical and methodological issues and analyze the prospects and problems of using Buddhism as an environmental resource in both theory and practice. This volume inaugurates a larger series examining the religions of the world and their ecological implications which is designed to shape a field of study involving religious issues, contemporary environmental ethics, and public policy concerns.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A volume of this kind is an important step in engaging scholarship to address critical issues of our time. The potential of religious traditions offering resources for rethinking our relation to the earth is one of the most exciting themes to emerge from scholarship in many years. This volume will be a first important step to the full understanding of the contribution humankind's perceptions of the sacred can make to the way we care for our earth.--Rodney L. Taylor Professor Of Religious Studies And Associate Dean of The Graduate School "University of Colorado "
What a significant advance these articles represent for the study of religion and ecology. The potential contribution to the new field of J religious ecology is immense. These papers will help to create a coherent field for the study of Buddhism and ecology. What is even more important, though this is not the precise task of scholarship, these papers will help define the modern Buddhist response to ecological ethics.--John Berthrong, Associate Dean For Academic And Administrative Affairs "Boston University School of Theology, and Director, Institute for Dialogue among Religions "
