About the book:

This book treats the history of Buddhism in China up to present century and concludes with a brief but excellent chapter on the contributions of Buddhism to Chinese culture. Dr. Ch'en has given a clear statement which is suitable for the lay scholar as well as the professional historian of religions. Contains a glossary of Chinese, Sanskrit, and Pali terms which is quite helpful, as well as an index of Chinese names. "Professor Kenneth Ch'en brings a precious contribution to Buddhistic studies with this book. . . . Not only does it fill an important gap in research, but it is composed and written in a masterly manner."--Pacific Affairs
