   schema:description "After the collapse of dynastic rule in China, religion succeeded where the rhetoric of nationalism and ethnicity had failed in linking China and Tibet. To win over the Tibetan elite, Chinese nationalist politicians embraced a growing sense of pan-Asian Buddhism that had developed under the influence of western ideas of Buddhism as a world religion. After seizing control of Tibet by force in the 1950s, the communists would also appeal to a sense of a shared Buddhism in their efforts to integrate this vast new territory. Drawing on previously unexamined archival and governmental materials, as well as personal memoirs of Chinese politicians and Buddhist monks, Tuttle demonstrates the crucial role Buddhism played in China's transition from dynastic empire to nation state. His study also offers new perspectives on the transition of diverse East Asian traditions into a single Buddhist religion."@en ;
