'A History of Mindfulness: How Insight Worsted Tranquillity in the Satipatthana Sutta' by Ajahn Sujato

The Satipatthana Sutta is the most influential Buddhist discourse in modern Theravada meditation. Yet rarely have modern expositions of satipatthana acknowledged the simple fact that there are several sectarian versions of the satipatthana Sutta. These share much in common, yet differ in key points. This is the first full-scale study encompassing all existing versions of the Satipatthana sutta, examining its place within the dynamic evolution of the Buddhist scriptures and the Indian meditative tradition as a whole.

Very interesting. While I've only just started reading this book, I feel it holds a lot of answers to questions I have about the origins of contemporary satipatthana practice as instructed by followers of the so-called vipassana-movement (or vipassanavada, as they call it in the book).
