Description

What does it take to make political work a mission of peace? Victoria Stoklasa, author of SIGN IT INTO LAW and TRANSGENDER MARRIAGE RIGHTS IN TEXAS, presents an accessible guide to using the teachings of Buddhism to make the world a better place. By following the tenets of the Noble Eightfold Path, citizens and politicians alike can change their thinking and their actions to follow a middle path--no extremes, so suffering. This quick read continues Stoklasa's tradition of accessible political thought and common sense policymaking, and it serves as a complement to any campaign or election.

Here's what people are already saying about BUDDHISM AND POLITICS:

"Despite being neither an expert in Buddhism or politics, I came away enlightened by the content of this book...I urge you to read this book. Even if you haven't the slightest idea about Buddhism and perhaps a vague idea about politics, you will benefit from it." - Reed James, "Reed's Reads"
