The New York Review began during the New York publishing strike of 1963, when its founding editors, Robert Silvers and Barbara Epstein, and their friends, decided to create a new kind of magazine - one in which the most interesting and qualified minds of our time would discuss current books and issues in depth.

Digital Dictionary of Buddhism
Description: This dictionary is a compilation of Buddhist terms,
texts, temple, schools, persons, etc. found in Buddhist canonical
sources. Its compilation was initiated in 1986 during my first
semester of graduate school, upon my realization of the dearth of
comprehensive English language reference works for Buddhist technical
terminology. Since my basic area of interest was the Chinese Buddhist
canon, the orientation of the dictionary has been toward East Asian
sources, and therefore the dictionary was known during its first 15
years of existence as the Dictionary of East Asian Buddhist Terms
(DEABT). Realizing, however, that a large portion of the content was
actually concerned with Indian and other cultural manifestations of
Buddhism, and not wanting to discourage potential collaborators with
other orientations, we renamed it, in 2001, to the present Digital
Dictionary of Buddhism (DDB). Thus, the content of this
database/dictionary/encyclopedia/translation glossary is intended to
be pan-Buddhist in character.
