"This carefully edited volume--comprehensive in scope and well organized in presentation--offers rare insight into the doctrines and monastic laws that contemporary Buddhist clerics are drawing upon in their efforts to restore the bhikkhuni sagha. It is essential reading for those who want to understand how Buddhists are thinking through the question of bhikkhuni ordination. I recommend this volume with warm enthusiasm."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion "The controversy surrounding full female ordination is one of the most pressing issues facing modern Buddhism. Dignity and Discipline is without a doubt the most valuable book on the subject to date, and should be required reading for anyone interested in contemporary Buddhism."--Buddhadharma: The Buddhist Review "A selection of the papers from...a public dialogue on a global scale: [one that] brought together Buddhist scholars and practitioners, Asian and Western, across sectarian boundaries, to discuss a shared and pressing concern that has larger implications for how Buddhism will adapt to changing socio-historical contexts.... The opening essay...boldly envisions what a future with a strong, vibrant order of fully ordained Buddhist nuns might look like and how they might contribute to current global issues... Dignity & Discipline documents an important and unique moment in Buddhist history...[and] the editors have been successful in creating a readable volume that works as a whole."--Journal of Global Buddhism
