NEW BOOK> Reconstructing the Confucian Dao, by Joseph Adler

I just finished reading this and hadn't seen it announced anywhere. Excellent contribution to the field of the history of Chinese thought, in my opinion. Although the main topic is (Neo-)Confucianism, there is a lot  in here on the relationship between Confucianism and Buddhism during the Song:

Discusses how Zhou Dunyi’s thought became a cornerstone of neo-Confucianism.
