Summary
British activist and a Zen practitioner for over 30 years, Jones argues that the distinction between personal Buddhist practice and social activism to benefit the world is illusory. Though he writes for non-Buddhists as well, he particularly addresses Buddhists. He has completely revised the 1989 edition. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
