About the book:

The second edition of A GUIDE TO ORIENTAL CLASSICS is a significant revision of this useful guide to the classics of four Asian traditions. Major cultural works from the Islamic, Indian, Chinese, and Japanese traditions, ranging from history, philosophy, and religion to poetry, drama, and fiction, are included in this bibliographic guide. Added to this edition are new translations and studies published since the appearance of the first edition. Particular care has been given to include paperback editions of works previously cited or new paperback editions which have appeared. The sections dealing with major texts of Indian, Chinese, and Japanese Buddhism have been expanded to cover five more Indian texts, two more Chinese texts, and two more Japanese texts. Sections on supplementary readings in Chinese and Japanese Buddhism have been added, paralleling the section of supplementary readings in Indian Buddhism. The entry for each classic includes a list of translations, complete or partial, into English and other Western languages, with evaluative notes, followed by a list of secondary readings and a series of topics for discussion. The basic guide has demonstrated its usefulness to teachers and students of Oriental cultures and to general readers interested in the masterpieces of these four traditions.
