Re: Kieschnick on Lock and Linebarger, 'Chinese Buddhist Texts: An Introductory Reader'

Thank you very much for this review, which I think is very fair. I completely agree that different kinds of students might prefer different kinds of approaches, and the more options that are available the better. May I also draw attention to the fact that we are currently building resources for users of the reader, including audio recordings of the text extracts, a forum for students and instructors, additional references and links, and draft translations. Unfortunately a link to these resources was not included in the published book.
