Dear H-Buddhism Subcribers,
    I am pleased to announce the publication of Volume 3 of the Selected Works of D. T. Suzuki, Comparative Religion, edited by Tomoe Moriya and Jeffrey Wilson, published by the University of California Press.  This third volume of Selected Works of D. T. Suzuki brings together a diverse collection of Suzuki’s letters, essays, and lectures about non-Buddhist religions and his thoughts on their relation to Buddhism, as well as his reflections on the nature of religion itself. Some of these writings have been translated into English for the first time in this volume, for example, three chapters of Suzuki's first book, Shin shūkyō ron 新宗教論 (A New Interpretation of Religion; 1896).  As a long-term resident of the United States, a world traveler, and a voracious consumer of information about all forms of religion, Suzuki was one of the foremost Japanese mediators of Eastern and Western religious cultures for nearly seven decades. An introduction by Jeff Wilson and Tomoe Moriya analyzes Suzuki’s frequent encounters with texts and practitioners of many religions, considers how events in Suzuki’s lifetime affected his interpretations of Christianity, Shinto, and other traditions, and demonstrates that his legacy as a scholar extends well beyond Buddhism.
