Secular Buddhism: Imagining the Dharma in an Uncertain World

by Stephen Batchelor

An essential collection of Stephen Batchelor's most probing and important work on secular Buddhism As the practice of mindfulness permeates mainstream Western culture, more and more people are engaging in a traditional form of Buddhist meditation. However, many of these people have little interest in the religious aspects of Buddhism, and the practice occurs within secular contexts such as hospitals, schools, and the workplace. Is it possible to recover from the Buddhist teachings a vision of human flourishing that is secular rather than religious without compromising the integrity of the tradition? Is there an ethical framework that can underpin and contextualize these practices in a rapidly changing world? In this collected volume of Stephen Batchelor's writings on these themes, he explores the complex implications of Buddhism's secularization. Ranging widely--from reincarnation, religious belief, and agnosticism to the role of the arts in Buddhist practice--he offers a detailed picture of contemporary Buddhism and its attempt to find a voice in the modern world.

Secularism Soviet Style

by Sonja Luehrmann

Sonja Luehrmann explores the Soviet atheist effort to build a society without gods or spirits and its afterlife in post-Soviet religious revival. Combining archival research on atheist propaganda of the 1960s and 1970s with ethnographic fieldwork in the autonomous republic of Marij El in Russia's Volga region, Luehrmann examines how secularist culture-building reshaped religious practice and interreligious relations. One of the most palpable legacies of atheist propaganda is a widespread didactic orientation among the population and a faith in standardized programs of personal transformation as solutions to wider social problems. This didactic trend has parallels in globalized forms of Protestantism and Islam but differs from older uses of religious knowledge in rural Russia. At a time when the secularist modernization projects of the 20th century are widely perceived to have failed, Secularism Soviet Style emphasizes the affinities and shared histories of religious and atheist mobilizations.

Security in Network Coding

by Chuang Lin Peng Zhang

This book covers a series of security and privacy issues in network coding, and introduces three concrete mechanisms to address them. These mechanisms leverage traditional cryptographic primitives and anonymous protocols, and are redesigned to fit into the new framework of network coding. These three mechanisms are MacSig, a new message authentication method for network-coded systems; P-Coding, a new encryption scheme to secure network-coding-based transmissions; and ANOC, a new anonymous routing protocol that seamlessly integrates anonymous routing with network coding. Along with these three mechanisms, the authors provide a review of network coding's benefits, applications, and security problems. Also included is a detailed overview of security issues in the field, with an explanation of how the security issues differ from those in traditional settings. While network coding can help improve network performance, the adoption of network coding can be greatly limited unless security and privacy threats are addressed. Designed for researchers and professionals, Security in Network Coding explores major challenges in network coding and offers practical solutions. Advanced-level students studying networking or system security will also find the content valuable.

Seduce Me: Erotic Tales

by Michele Slung

Who better to oversee a dozen surprising tales of seduction than the editor of the sensual classics Slow Hand and Fever? Seduce Me is the result of Michele Slung's asking twelve accomplished erotic storytellers to woo us and tease us, and take us on journeys of delightful enticement-past boundaries and inhibitions and on to places where the senses rule. "Seduction is a state of mind, usually with a population of two," she writes in her preface. "But no matter how familiar its portal might seem, what lies beyond is always uncharted territory." To prove this, Slung has selected stories in which the arts of seduction are practiced on an intriguing array of canvases. In "Rising Son," for example, a luscious Japanese courtesan beds one man while another, to her intense pleasure, secretly spies on them. The handsome hero of "Southern Comfort" is a country boy who happily takes lessons in big-city ways-and much, much more-from an elegant ballerina. "Life Class" introduces us to a celebrated artist and his muse who find themselves magnetized by highly charged but shifting passions. "The Butler Did It" carries us to a holiday on a sultry Caribbean island where a lustful young woman orchestrates an utterly satisfying sexual initiation. Then, in "Let Me Help," conjugal intimacy is both old and thrillingly new again, while the experience of being led down that old garden path has never been as fulfilling as it is in the hot and witty romp "In Her Garden." Of course, these tales comprise just half of the book: there are six more offerings just as tantalizing, just as gratifying. Seduce me. Is it a command or an invitation? Whichever you think the answer is, the stories here will keep you tantalized, tingling, and turned on. And they will remind you, as well, why sex is actually an eleven-letter word-spelled i-m-a-g-i-n-a-t-i-o-n.
