Description Contents
 
Extracted from the Preface:
The outline of the philosophical literature of the Indian Madhyamaka school is based on the Sanskrit sources to the limited extent they are now available to us. The major part of this literature is unfortunately not extant in the original and must be presumed lost. However, this loss is at least partly compensated for by the fact that a very large number of important works of this school were translated into Chinese and Tibetan.

Limitations of space have moreover allowed the inclusion of short and hence selective summaries of only some of the most fundamental texts from the 1000-year history of the Indian Madhyamaka. The majority of the works from this vast literature have had to be mentioned simply by title, with brief indications being given as to the contents of some of the more important ones.

Note by publisher:
A History of Indian Literature was published originally between 1975 and 1987 in 10 volumes (30 books). This series which had been out of print for quite some time, is now being presented in a hard cover reprint.
