The single most valuable collection of English-language readings on China past and present for more than thirty years — now thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the changing currents of recent Chinese history. Stretching from the founding of the Qing dynasty to the aftermath of the crackdown at Tiananmen Square, Sources of Chinese Tradition, Volume II is a rich treasury of primary source readings illuminating the past three and a half centuries of Chinese culture.

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.
