  • An early work is Buddhist Logic (1932) by Fyodor Shcherbatskoy,



    although this is now extremely dated in the light of more recent research.

A more contemporary work is:

"Foundations of Dharmakirti's Philosophy" John D. Dunne, Wisdom Publications, 2004

There is also extensive discussion of the Dharmakirti's Tibetan reception in:
