Description : The Oxford Handbook of Religious Conversion offers a comprehensive exploration of the dynamics of religious conversion, which for centuries has profoundly shaped societies, cultures, and individuals throughout the world. Scholars from a wide array of religions and disciplines interpret both the varieties of conversion experiences and the processes that inform this personal and communal phenomenon. This volume examines the experiences of individuals and communities who change religions, those who experience an intensification of their religion of origin, and those who encounter new religions through colonial intrusion, missionary work, and charismatic and revitalization movements. The thirty-two innovative essays provide overviews of the history of particular religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism, indigenous religions, and new religious movements. The essays also offer a wide range of disciplinary perspectives-psychological, sociological, anthropological, legal, political, feminist, and geographical-on methods and theories deployed in understanding conversion, and insight into various forms of deconversion.

Description : Drug epidemics are clearly not just a peculiar feature of modern life; the opium trade in the nineteenth century tells us a great deal about Asian herion traffic today. In an age when we are increasingly aware of large scale drug use, this book takes a long look at the history of our relationship with mind-altering substances. Engagingly written, with lay readers as much as specialists in mind, this book will be fascinating reading for historians, social scientists, as well as those involved in Asian studies, or economic history.

Description : This volume is dedicated to the memory of the Indologist and philosopher Wilhelm Halbfass (1940-2000), a thinker who mediated in a singular manner between the Indian and European intellectual worlds. It pays tribute to his contribution to a philosophically differentiated and methodically reflected understanding of the history of Indian thought, especially the history of philosophy and the history of the intellectual meeting of India and Europe. The contributions to this volume also document the disciplines and various areas in the study of Indian intellectual history upon which Halbfass' work had an inspiring effect. Following the forword by E. Franco, articles by 48 authors are thematically arranged into six chapters.
