Ikeda, Daisaku
Beginning with the introduction of the religion into China, this chronicle depicts the evolution of Buddhism. The career and achievements of the great Kumarajiva are investigated, exploring the famed philosophical treatises that form the core of East Asian Buddhist literature. Providing a useful and accessible introduction to the influential Tien-t'ai school of Buddhism in Japan as well as the teachings of the 13th-century monk Nichiren, this examination places special emphasis on the faith of the Lotus Sutra and the major works of masters such as Hui-su, Chih-i, and Chanjan. From the early translations of the Buddhist scriptures to the persecution of the T'ang dynasty, this exploration illuminates the role of Buddhism in Chinese society, and by extension, in humanity in general. 194pp.Slight crease mark to rear cover.

Hufton, Olwen
This book brings together a mass of detailed and dispersed material on women in early modern Europe, as well as giving readers a new interpretation of the considerable study of women which has emerged over the list two decades. The author's range is ambitious and, unlike previous works in the field which isolate particular aspects of the lives of women or of the versions of woman, she considers the situation of all kinds of women, all aspects of their lives, across the whole of Western Europe, particularly England and France, and over three centuries. The book's approach is thematic with chapters on female rites of passage - girlhood marriage, married life as well as norms, sexuality, witches and saints. 654pp. N.B. Reading crease to spine. Previous owners inscription to ffep.
