[I picked Pure Land as my topic]
This paper must contain 3 sources. 1 of it must be a book (about pure land), other can be articles.
The bibliographic analysis should be a critical review of and reaction to several (at least 2) academic monographs that concern a common topic (e.g., “Pure Land”) or that use a similar methodology (e.g., sociology) to describe some aspect of Japanese Buddhism. It should combine the features of a report (i.e., discuss and evaluate the topic) and of a book review (i.e., identify contents and contribution of each author to your understanding of the topic). You can use articles (from journals) or essays (from edited volumes) to supplement the monographs, but concentrate on monographs. For more detailed instructions on how to write a successful bibliographic analysis, see the handout titled “Your Bibliographic Analysis” (on the course website).
