Jeffrey L. Broughton is Professor of Religious Studies at California State University, Long Beach.
"Jeffrey Broughton's Record of Linji is a magnificent work of scholarship. It translates what the author rightly calls 'the most prominent work in all of Chan literature,' and goes far beyond all previous translations in making this seminal text understandable by embedding the ten most important Zen commentaries into the original text. This rich textual tradition is made readily available to readers of Broughton's translation and the result is an opportunity to enter into Chan and Zen discourse that has been previously unavailable to western readers."--Dale Wright, David B. and Mary H. Gamble Professor in Religion, Occidental College
