Summary: ".a marvel of erudition.this is a fascinating and informative book."--Parabola"This is an unusual, stimulating piece of scholarship. It is exhaustively researched, linked deeply and broadly to the larger discussions circulating through Tibetan studies and the histories of religions. It is fair-minded in relation to its sources, critical of traditional historiography without being belligerent. Not only will scholars of Tibetan Buddhism benefit from this work, but also historians of Tibet generally, practitioners of tantric Buddhism,philosophers and mythologists should have this book on their shelves."--Transcendent Philosophy.
