Discussing the core, shared values of Hinduism and Buddhism, the authors examine international movements aimed at the development and protection of human rights, the elimination of nuclear weapons, and the creation of international legal frameworks to punish war crimes and crimes against humanity. The expansive dialogue demonstrates that it is but a short leap — or no leap at all — from the personal practice of religion to resolute support for the emerging norms and institutions of global civil society. Readers, religious or not, will come away with a powerful sense of hope for the shared global future.
