Abstract

Reviews 533 the religious and historical meaning of Nirvana in China, the author set aside aesthetic concerns. This work is directed to and will be very much appreciated by a specialist audience. I am particularly impressed by the fact that this is Lee's first book. Nonetheless, it already displays a great deal of intellectual maturity, a high level of scholarship, and an uncommon sensitivity to cultural issues. One last comment involves the physical production of the book: it is well edited, the quality of the illustrations is commendable and enhances the content. The Hong Kong University Press has, indeed, produced a very attractive text. Angela Falco Howard Angela Falco Howard is a professor of Asian art in the Department of Art History, Rutgers. Howard has authored The Imagery of the Cosmological Buddha (1986) and Summit of Treasures: Buddhist Cave Art of Dazu, China (2001). She contributed to the exhibition China, Dawn of a Golden Age (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 2004). She is the Western editor and coauthor of Chinese Sculpture (New Haven, CT, and Beijing: Yale University and Foreign Language Press, 2006). Mark Edward Lewis.
