Although Dr. Tambiah retired from active teaching in 2001, he continues his research and writing on monastic complexes and temples in Bangkok; political violence in South Asia, especially the Bombay riots of 1991-92; and transnational movements of people and diaspora communities in an age of “globalization." He also continues with his comparative study of the charisma of saints and the cults of relics, amulets and tomb shrines in some Christian, Buddhist, and Sufi Islamic traditions. Since 2002, he has begun a field study of Sri Lankan immigrants in Toronto, Canada. His major publications include Edmund Leach: An Anthropological Life (2002); Transnational Movements, Diaspora, and Multiple Modernities (2000); Leveling Crowds: Ethnonationalist Conflicts and Collective Violence in South Asia (1997); Buddhism Betrayed? Religion, Politics and Violence in Sri Lanka (1992); Sri Lanka: Ethnic Fratricide and the Dismantling of Democracy (1992); Magic, Science, Religion and the Scope of Rationality (1990); Culture, Thought and Social Action (1985); The Buddhist Saints of the Forest and the Cult of Amulets (1985);  World Conqueror and World Renouncer (1977); Buddhism and the Spirit Cults in Northeast Thailand (1975), and Bridewealth and Dowry (1974).
