"The consistent1y fine and broad ranging studies assembled in this volume signal a new turn in Buddhology by demonstrating how the traditional questions of textual transmission can best be answered, and in some cases only be answered, by moving beyond the Buddhist canon to consider the political, ecclesiastical, social, and economic forces that help ed to shape that canon." (Stephen F. Teiser, Princeton University)

"Work of this kind is of primary importance to Sinology and to the study of East Asian religions, for it corrects the sectarian approach to Chinese andJ apanese Buddhism and the bias against popular religion that have prevailed in Sinology since theJesuit missionaries." (Bernard Faure, Stanford University)

"Because of the careful documentation by its editor and authors, this volume contains the resources for establishing Buddhist apocrypha as a viable and exciting new field of study. AH courses on Chinese Buddhism should begin with references to this book. " (David Chappell, University of Hawaii)

Modern scholarship has revealed that many of the most important Chinese Buddhist scriptures are not translations of Indian texts, as they purport to be, but actually were composed in China by Chinese authors.

These indigenous scriptures are the subject of an exciting new field of study that promises to reshape our sense of the development of Chinese Buddhism. The variety of apocryphal texts now known to exist in China will compel scholars to see the Buddhist canon not as a fixed repository but as a fluctuating, tension-filled institution-one that can now be understood in relation to its social, historical, and religious contexts.

Robert E. Buswell, Jr., is associate professor of East Asian languages and cultures at the University ofCalifornia, Los Angeles. He is the author of The Formation of Ch'an Ideology in China and Korea: The Vajrasamādhi Sütra, A Buddhist Apocryphon and translator of The Korean Approach to Zen: The Collected Works of Chinul.
