Japanese historians have dealt with Kamakura Buddhism in terms of the major sectarian developments of the time, tending to ignore the fact that the ancient sects continued to exist and exert influence on the development of the tradition. Prof. Morrell has provided "a minority report," a study of these smaller but nonetheless important groups within Buddhism during the Kamakura period. This is a much needed addition to the works dealing with the history and religions of Japan. It will be of interest not only to Buddhist scholars but to all those who deal with the culture of Japan.
"... This book is an exciting, important collection, well worth the time to read and suitable for libraries..."--Choice
