In an increasingly global society, non-Western thought can no longer be an afterthought for educators and their students. Asian Texts -- Asian Contexts helps bring Asian philosophy and religion into wider classroom consideration by giving nonspecialists entr e to primary texts from India, China, and Japan and pedagogical strategies for presenting this material to Western students.

The texts section includes material on Buddhism, Daoism, the Bhagavad-Gita, and the Kyoto school of Japanese philosophy. In the contexts section, nonspecialists are presented with ways to think about the integration of Asian material that includes considerations of religion, philosophy, history, and art. These useful and accessible essays are written with the nonspecialist in mind, but provide a creative edge that will be of interest to specialists as well.
David Jones is Professor of Philosophy at Kennesaw State University and editor of Confucius Now: Contemporary Encounters with the Analects. E. R. Klein is an independent scholar. Her books include People First! Professional and Business Ethics without Ethics.
