Buddhism in Chinese Society: An Economic History from the Fifth to the Tenth Centuries (Studies in Asian Cultures)

J Gernet

"This work will remain one of this century's classic histories of China. Gernet's account of Buddhism is sobering."
"This is perhaps the greatest contribution of Gernet's work: he demonstrates through the skilled use of a dazzling variety of literary evidence the complexity of the interchange between Buddhism and Chinese society." -- China Review International "This is an analysis of Buddhist practice within its socio-economic context and still one of the best examples of Chinese social history in any discipline in forty years. For new generations of researchers, the forty years' wait [for the English translation] has been worth it." -- China Review "The value of this book is its translations of primary sources and its salutary reminder of the importance of economic motivations and activities in the history of Chinese Buddhism."
First published in French in Saigon in 1956, this classic work integrates the study of Buddhist doctrine with the study of Chinese society from the fifth to the tenth centuries.

JAMES C. DOBBINS

The “Encyclopedia of Buddhism” provides a comprehensive overview of one of Asia's most important religious and social forces, describing the Buddhist worldview, basic teachings and practices, history, and the different schools and sects. This intriguing set illuminates a religion that is a mystery to most Westerners by exploring Buddhist scriptures, art, architecture, saints, demons, monastic orders, festivals, rites and ceremonies, as well as the different forms Buddhism has taken in different parts of the world, and how it has blended with other religions like Shinto, Confucianism, Daoism and Christianity.
