Widely used and praised for almost forty years as an authoritative resource for scholars and students and as a thorough and engaging introduction for general readers, Sources of Chinese Tradition, Volume 1 has been dramatically updated to reflect recent scholarly developments, with extensive material on popular thought and religion, social roles, and women's education. This edition features new translations of more than half the works from the first edition, as well as many new selections.

The selections are excellent, translations faithful and elegant, and introductions terse and to the point. If I were asked to recommend only one book for anyone who wishes to know something about Chinese culture, I would name, without a moment of hesitation, this new edition of Sources of Chinese Tradition.
