MEDIA REVIEWS
`scholarly and very readable study' Times Higher Education Supplement
meticulous, accurate, insightful, and careful... I cannot overstate the importance of this work.` Charles Prebish, Penn State University.
This is a substantial study in which the author has attempted to put forward a revised perspective on a large part of the Indian Buddhist tradition ... this is a work of considerable breadth of scholarship, drawing on the work of French and German scholarship as well as English-language writing ... Ray has succeeded in presenting a thought-provoking thesis; some of what he proposes will stand. * Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies *
