While courses in personal, social and moral education proliferate in schools and there is much talk in educational circles of ' Values Education', GCSE syllabuses in Religious Studies have been focusing more on moral issues, with syllabuses (like Southern Examination Group's Syllabus B) covering 'personal and social ethics in a religious context'. Religious perspectives on moral issues are of clear importance in all this, yet there is a minimal amount of available material for teachers introducing Hindu ethics - despite the fact that Britain has a substantial Hindu population of over 360,000. This book, provides authoritative material on the key issues likely to be relevant to teaching programmes in schools and colleges. Written by the authors of the acclaimed Approaches to Hinduism (John Murray 1988) and in consultation with members of Hindu communities, the book covers issues concerning family, peace and conflict, minority rights, health and the environment in the context of Hindu practice and tradition.
