A work of great worth. . . . de Bary and Bloom present an eloquent and compelling argument for the inclusion of the Asian classics in any construction of a general curriculum for the American student by showing that in terms of content and canon, process and method, Asian classics can and should make crucial contributions.

His many books include Waiting for the Dawn, Message of the Mind, and Learning for One's Self, as well as Sources of Japanese Tradition and Sources of Korean Tradition, all published by Columbia University Press.
