Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Encyclopedia of Eastern Philosophy and Religion (Shambhala, 1989) was an English translation of the Lexikon der ostlichen Weisheitslehren, published in Germany in 1986. The present, separate dictionary is made up exclusively of the entries relating to Taoism from the 1989 volume. It also includes the useful bibliography of primary and secondary sources on Taoism from that earlier volume and a helpful conversion guide from the Pinyin system for the romanization of Chinese to the widely used earlier Wade-Giles system. The over 300 entries in this volume cover the mythological background and historical development of Taoism, the life and teachings of important figures, texts and scriptures, various schools of Taoist thought, and a variety of practices within the religion. Entries are arranged alphabetically by subject using a letter-by-letter method of alphabetizing. What makes this dictionary so useful is the depth of scholarship, the thoroughness of presentation, the understanding of Eastern ways of thinking, and the overall context into which each subject is put so the reader can understand how and why the subject or person is important and the contribution made to Taoism. Highly recommended for those libraries not owning the earlier volume or for those wishing an additional separate volume on Taoism.-David Bourquin, California State Univ., San Bernardino
