About Book:

Volume 1: India and China - A New edition of Dumoulin's classic two-volume history brings these essential reference works back to students of Zen. This new edition of vol 1, on the early years of the emergence of Zen through India and China, includes: *Notes on the new editions by James W. Heisig of the Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture* A new introduction by John R. Mc Rae of Indiana University; and * the complete original text of Heinrich Dumoulin. New developments in the study of Zen are explored in the provocative new introduction, which adds further significance to the remarkable, comprehensive history given by Dumoulin.

Volume 2: Japan - A New edition of Dumoulin's classic two-volume history brings these essential reference works back to students of Zen. This new edition of vol 2, on the introduction and full development of Zen in Japan, includes: * notes on the new editions by James W. Heisig of the Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture * a new introduction by Victor Sogen Hori of McGill University; and * the complete original text of Heinrich Dumoulin. The introduction by Victor Sogen Hori confronts head-on the intense debate on how Dumoulin's history, and other similar contributions to Zen studies, should be regarded. Hori presents some fascinating cautions of his own on the pursuit of Zen scholarship and concludes.
