This is the first study in a Western language of the institutional factors that lay behind the school's success. At its core is a biography of a major figure who played an active role during the transformation, Ryogen (912-985). The discussion, however, extends well beyond a simple biography as Ryogen's activities are placed in their historical and institutional context."--Jacket." ;
