Editorial Reviews

Review

A benchmark of scholarly excellence ... very thoroughly and coherently organized.... Stone’s work is also important because it both examines medieval sources and introduces us to the works of many contemporary Japanese scholars. Her summaries of their works open up an important world of research and study., H-Net Reviews

A careful reading and re-reading by this reviewer has only served to confirm the aptness of the superlatives lavished by the above colleagues, themselves pace-setting scholars of Japanese Buddhism., The Eastern Buddhist XXXII

A sophisticated and complex study, Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies

A brilliant presentation and analysis of an influential discourse in Japanese Buddhism, religion, and culture.... Everybody must get Stone., Japanese Journal of Religious Studies

Stone’s excellent treatment ... will become the new benchmark for all subsequent inquiries into this topic., Journal of Japanese Studies

One of very few seminal works on Japanese Buddhism.... Stone’s meticulous research and style brings a greater understanding of perhaps the most important period and movement in Japanese Buddhist history., Daily Yomiuri

This book brims over with stimulating discussions, sharp analyses, and a variety of interesting topics., IIAS Newsletter

Eine ausgezeichnete Grundlage, NOAG

Review

This book will become a classic, a seminal text that will encourage other studies in the fertile ground that Stone has so ably broken. It is one of the most important books on Japanese Buddhism ever written. -- Paul Groner, University of Virginia
