The Emergence of China : From Confucius to the Empire
by E. Bruce Brooks and A. Taeko Brooks
English | 2015 | ISBN: 1936166755 | 257 Pages | PDF | 5.45 MB

The Emergence of China presents the classical period in its own terms. It contains more than 500 translated excerpts from the classical texts, linked by a running commentary which traces the evolution and interaction of the different schools of thought. These are shown in dialogue about issues from tax policy to the length of the mourning period for a parent. Some texts labor to establish the legal and political structures of the new state, while others passionately oppose its war orientation, or amusingly ridicule those who supported it. Here are the arguments of the Hundred Schools of classical thought, for the first time restored to life and vividly presented.
