Formatted abstract
This scholarly monograph makes use of previously unused sources (the writings of Khmer intellectuals of the late 19th and early 20th centuries) in order to discover how Cambodian Buddhists responded to the challenge of modernity posed by French colonialism. The religious modernism they developed took the form of propagating a more authentic, purified ethics, whose implications, given the Theravada Buddhist worldview, went well beyond the monastery to shape the Khmer response to the political and social changes introduced by the French.
