Editorial Reviews

Review

“At last, after 165 years, a translation of Eugène Burnouf’s magnum opus! Katia Buffetrille and Donald Lopez make available to English readers a work from the infancy of Buddhist scholarship, and enable us to discover its remarkable precociousness, and how much we still have to learn from it.”

(John Strong, Bates College)

“To a considerable extent, Burnouf was responsible for first articulating the master narrative of Indian Buddhism, which retains a potent hold on our understanding of Buddhism today. . . . The translators deserve our gratitude for providing the occasion for reflecting on the foundations of this narrative, by bringing Burnouf’s great work of early Buddhist scholarship to our attention and making it more broadly accessible.”
(H-Asia)
