Recensione:

A unique introduction to Asian religions, combining thescholarly rigor of an established historian of Asian religions withthe willingness to engage empathetically with the traditions and tosuggest that readers do the same.
Joseph A. Adler, Kenyon College

Randall L. Nadeau has accomplished what only a few havetried, but which has been much needed in the study ofreligions.  He has written a genuinely novel approach to thereligions of Asia. . . This is a work that should find its way intoAsian humanities, history, religion, and civilizationcourses.
Ronnie Littlejohn, Belmont University

"Comprehensive, historical, and comparative, with a clearand thoughtful focus on East Asia. The author′s central interest isChina, but he adds Theravada Buddhism and Japan′s religions tocomplete the total picture. A good book for undergraduate studentsof Asian religions."
Jim Kodera, Wellesley College
