"This is a fine collection of ten essays on the Japanese founder of Soto Zen, Dogen (1200-1253), who is both an important figure in Japanese Buddhist history and, through his interpreters, a major influence in what can be called modern global Buddhism."--Religious Studies Review
"Steven Heine has for decades been one of the West's leading scholars in Dogen studies, publishing translations of Dogen's poetry, reflecting on Dogen's philosophy and setting straight the historical record on Dogen. In recent years, many new translations of Dogen's writings have appeared and scholarly publication in the field of Dogen studies has grown dramatically. To bring order to this new scholarship, Heine has brought together in this volume an impressive collection of state-of-the-art essays from leading Dogen scholars. They represent the leading edge in new textual and historical research in Dogen studies."
-- Victor Sogen Hori, author of Zen Sand
"This well-conceived volume includes numerous essays that will serve the study of Dogen far into the future."--Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly

I will wade through it eventually - I never return books - but only after I've read most of the other, more immediately important books on my Zen library shelf.
