'Many Petals of the Lotus is among the most revelatory books I've come across-or even heard of in Canada. Janet McLellan provides immense and minutely detailed information about the origins of the differences within and between each of the five Asian Buddhist communities she surveys. The scope of analysis is exceptionally diverse. Each chapter contains a wide-ranging cataloguing and superbly multifaceted analysis of the many aspects of Buddhist belief and practice, while a valuable additional focus is the role Buddhism plays in each group's mechanisms for cultural maintenance in Canada and in each individual's ethnocultural identity.'(Edward Herberg, Department of Sociology, Erindale College, University of Toronto)
