Another ethical imperative comes from the venerable Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh in Good Citizens: Creating Enlightened Society. The Vietnamese monk nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr. at the height of the Vietnam War is now 85, and continues his life s effort to promote spiritually based social engagement; his books have been reliable sellers that cross religious boundaries.Publishers Weekly Top 10 Religion Books, March 5 2012
