How to Behave

““In lucid prose accessible to specialists and non-specialists alike, [How to Behave: Buddhism and Modernity in Colonial Cambodia, 1860–1930, by Anne Ruth Hansen,] provides a sophisticated and multifaceted account of the early twentieth-century transformation of Buddhist discourse and pedagogical practices that should be of interest to any scholar or student of religious modernism.” —Journal of the American Academy of Religion

“Remarkable. . . . [Hansen’s] refreshing and provocative approach to the study of ethics in history will surely change the field in general. . . . As readers, we can only look forward to future studies that, if anything like this book, will change the way we understand ethics and its place in national memory and political and social reform.” —Journal of Religion
