Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

"Buddhism has had an active presence in Cambodia for over 1,500 years, enjoying alternate fortunes of acceptance and rejection by the ruling elite and the wider population. The history of Buddhism in Cambodia is pregnant with assumptions and theories that have gradually been taken as truths, making it very difficult to construct a reliable account of its development."

~ p. 11, "Buddhist Painting in Cambodia" by Vittorio Roveda & Sothon Yem
