Buddhist Fundamentalism and Minority Identities in Sri Lanka

by Tessa J Bartholomeusz & Chandra R De Silva (eds) - £25.00  State University of New York Press (1998)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780791438343 | ISBN 10: 0791438341

Explores Sinhala-Buddhist fundamentalist ideology and its power to shape the identities of Sri Lanka's ethnic and religious minorities. The ideology asserts a vital link between the island of Sri Lanka and the Sinhala people, especially in their role as curators of Buddhism, and often to the exclusion of minorities. Minority responses are manifold, ranging from assimilation to the formation of rival fundamentalisms. It is arguably the single most important issue facing Sri Lanka today.
