Associate Professor Matt Moore's book, "Buddhism and Political Theory", was named one of CHOICE's 2016 Outstanding Academic Titles. 

"The Outstanding Academic Title list includes 494 books and electronic resources chosen by the Choice editorial staff from among over 5,400 titles reviewed by Choice during the past year. Of these, 486 are print products; the remaining 8 are electronic. These outstanding works have been selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as important - often the first - treatment of their subject. Comprising almost 9 percent of the titles reviewed by Choice during the past year, and less than 3 percent of the more than 25,000 titles submitted to Choice during the same period, Outstanding Academic Titles are truly the "best of the best." As always, only a select group of publishers and authors are represented on such a list. Congratulations to you and your colleagues on this outstanding achievement." -Angela Chnapko, Oxford Press
