Book Description

Offering choice selections from classical Chinese philosophical texts, this book makes an ideal complement to the three-volume textbook Classical Chinese: A Basic Reader. The main text and its four supplementary volumes together represent the most comprehensive and authoritative textbook on the language, literature, philosophy, history, and religion of premodern China. Rigorously and extensively field-tested and fine-tuned for years in classroom settings by three members of the Chinese Linguistics Project at Princeton University, it sets a new standard for the field. The other supplementary volumes include an introduction to grammar, readings in poetry and prose, and selections from historical texts.

As in the main volumes, all the reading texts here are supplemented by corresponding exercises with which to review and reinforce classroom learning.

With Classical Chinese: A Basic Reader and its supplementary volumes, Naiying Yuan, Haitao Tang, and James Geiss provide the definitive new resource for students and instructors of classical Chinese language or culture, one whose impact will be lasting.
