Soliciting reviews for Philosophy East and West

Friends, following the practice of Chakravarthi Ram-Prasad, I try to make a point to personally contact qualified reviewers for work on Indian philosophy for Philosophy East and West, while avoiding open calls for reviews. That said, I am in possession of some books that are indeed worthy of review but for whatever reason, I’ve had bad luck finding reviewers. I am worried that they will just languish on my office shelf until they become part of the scenery. I will list some of them below. If you are interested in writing a review, please contact me at

Eviatar Shulman, Rethinking the Buddha: Early Buddhist Philosophy as Meditative Perception (Cambridge University Press 2014)

Leah Kalmanson and James Mark Shields, Buddhist Responses to Globalization (Lexington Books 2014)

B. Alan Wallace, Mind in the Balance: Meditation in Science,Buddhism, and Christianity (Columbia Series in Science and Religion 2009)

If I don’t know you personally, please include a CV and academic credentials or a link to your academic web page. Thank you.
