    1. This is a very good starting point to debunk the myth of Buddhism as the religion of peace and compassion. A must read for all Buddhism practitioners, spiritual seekers and Buddhism studies students! I didn't give it 5 star because the research is still fragmental. Nonetheless, it openned up many new research areas.
