This is completely new translation of Nagarjuna's major work, accompanied by a detailed annotation of each of the verses. The annotations identify the metaphysical theories of the scholastics criticized by Nagarjuna, and trace the source material and arguments utilized in his refutation back to the early discourses of the Buddha.
