Editorial Reviews

Review

Editors Nalini Bhushan, Jay Garfield, and Abraham Zablocki have put together a dozen thoughtful essays on the intersection between traditional Buddhism and the modern West. One of the more compelling themes of the book is the vexing issue of authenticity and appopriation: who gets to claim legitimate ownership of the tradition and who is said to have adopted it. The encounters discussed in the book are wonderful in their diversity, and include Jim Jarmusch's 'Ghost Dog,' the amusing phenomenon of 'tulku envy' among white followers of Tibetan Buddhism who long to be supernaturally exceptional, and the wide-spread appropriation of Buddhist concepts in the game of golf. --Buddhadharma, Summer 2010

'TransBuddhism' is aptly named. This carefully edited volume of 12 essays is a fascinating, thought-provoking, and eclectic treatment of Buddhism's transmission, translation, and transformation in the West. . . . Written in a lucid style, the essays are accessible to the general reader and provide insights for the Buddhist scholar. Of added value are the vivid photographs by noted American artist Meridel Rubenstein. These serve as a visual narrative that nicely complements the essays. . . . Recommended. --W. J. Pankey, William Rainer Harper College, for CHOICE

Fascinating points about the spread of Buddhism to the West. I found the points that the book made about the translation process especially interesting.
