For young women in early South Asia, marriage was probably the most important event in their lives, as it largely determined their socioeconomic and religious future. Yet there has been little in the way of systematic examinations of the evidence on marriage customs among Buddhists of this time, and our understanding of the lives of early Buddhist women is still quite limited. This study uses ten stories from the Avadānaśataka, the collection of Buddhist narratives compiled from the second to fifth centuries CE, to examine the social landscape of early India. The author analyzes marital customs and the development of nuns’ hagiographies, while revealing regional variations of Buddhism in South Asia during this period.

"This study is an attempt to write the history of women in relation to spirituality and spiritual movements. The Deccan and the region south of the Vindhyas form its geographical limits. It cuts across time and space to look at the issue of gender inequalities in south Indian societies and at spirituality as a powerful form of women's self-expression."--p.[xi].

For the past two thousand years and more the figure of Gautama, the Buddha has attracted hagiographers and legend-makers whose output has for the most part left readers with a sense of dissatisfaction and frustration. On the other hand, there has been a flood of arcane scholarship on particular aspects of the Buddha's life, times, and teaching which has left the discriminating general reader unmoved. For him this biography, based on very extensive reading and written with rare elegance, delicacy, and verve will serve as an exhilarating breath of fresh air. Rather than treating Gautama as an isolated and prodigious phenomenon, the author views his life in the context of the important, eventful, and colourful age in which he lived. Part I 'The World of the Buddha' thus opens with a vivid account in a rich, descriptive, speculative vein of that wider world, of Greece, Persia, the Levant, China, Mongolia, Mesopotamia, Assyria; of Memphis, Sidon, Nineveh, Babylon. Part II 'Biographical' is the kernel of the book and occupies the greater part of it, progressing from Maya's Dream to the Buddha's death and beyond. Here we have a sensitive and deeply felt interpretation of the Buddha's life with the aim, as the author delicately expresses it, of a shift in 'emphasis from origins to attitudes - and from attitudes to those subtle processes of 'feeling and apprehension' to 'offer an interpretation of the Buddhist legend compatible with common sense'. Part III offers an elegant interpretation of 'The Word of the Buddha', Part IV 'And the Word Was Made Flesh' discusses Buddhist art and iconography, Part V 'The Buddha in a Changing World' examines what subsequent generations made of the Buddha'slegacy. This edition has a new chapter that evaluates subsequent research and writing on the Buddha's life and times, and major developments in the Buddhist world.

Twelve essays explore the history of Seattle and King County, Washington, with a special focus on social, cultural, and ethnic history. Adding a new perspective to knowledge of the Pacific Northwest, writers including University of Washington historians, independent scholars, and community activitists have dug in archives, interviewed community members, and researched far and wide to uncover new stories and offer new understandings of our collective past. Mary C. Wright teaches history at the University of Washington. Other contributors include Ed Diaz, Robert S. Fisher, Eric Flom, Marianne Forssblad, Charles LeWarne, Ronald E. Magden, Nhien T. Nguyen, Michael Reese, Kay Reinartz, Elizabeth Salas, Coll-Peter Thrush, and Jacqueline Williams. "Meet King CountyÕs earliest vaudevillians, welfare mothers, restauranteurs, African American coal miners, Scandinavian immigrants, shapers of the Young MenÕs Buddhist Association, and Jewish women founders of Settlement House. [Here also are the modern Mexican American voters and recent Vietnamese immigrants, reflecting in interviews on the forces that have impacted their Seattle experiences.] Now the historical stage can be shared by all its players, for a fuller and deeper portrait, a Pacific Northwest in all its complexity." - Karen Blair, editor of Women in Pacific Northwest History "This fresh collection of essays helps us revisit our past by challenging old myths and bringing detail to unexplored pieces of the regionÕs heritage. A wonderful, readable anthology that mixes traditional scholarship, oral histories, and stimulating new insights." - Ron Chew, Wing Luke Asian Museum "Now we may wonder again, with what zest are so many subjects both studied and shared? Previously these histories were rarely even whispered below the great baritone recitals of the same old stories. Beyond its title, More Voices, New Stories is in more than half of its contributions a vocalization of what were also formerly neglected voices and stories. Now in time for our three sesquicentennial celebrations of the founding of Seattle, King County, and Washington Territory comes More Voices, New Stories. ItÕs about time. ItÕs always about time." - Paul Dorpat, author of Seattle Now and Then
