Description: Though released in English previously, this volume marks the International Edition of Buddhadasa Bhikkhu's "Handbook for Mankind" . Such a statement begs the question as to what is particularly international about it. The answer lies in the following: though the efforts of the original compilers were undoubtedly valiant, the text remined enslaved by the Thai context, i.e. it preserved this set of lectures as delivered in 1956 to a group of prospective Thai judges - to people familiar with the concepts and paradigms of Buddhist and, furthermore, Buddhadasa's teachings. This edition was undertaken in order to broaden the applicability of Buddhadasa's "Handbook" to audiences unfamiliar with such mentalities.
