    DescriptionFew individuals have shaped their country's civilization more profoundly than the Master Kong (Confucius, 551-479 BC). Compulsory reading in the late Imperial period for all who wished to enter the Civil Service or Government, his sayings and those of his disciples form the foundation of a distinct social, ethical, and intellectual system. They have retained their freshness and vigour throughout the two and a half millennia of their currency, and are still admired even in today's China. This lively new translation with clear explanatory notes by one of the foremost scholars of classical Chinese provides the ideal introduction to the Analects for readers who have no previous knowledge of the Chinese language and philosophical traditions.

    Review quote
    "This is a fine new translation of The Analects. The introduction, notes, and extensive index provided by the translator, Raymond Dawson, are particularly helpful."--Wayne D. Owens, Incarnate Word College"This tightly edited and prefaced edition is true to the translation and historical work. While small, it is still powerful and important. While early in the history of writing, it still connects with readers today."--Professor Eric Wignall, Valparaiso University"This is a useful translation for an introductory course in Chinese and Eastern Philosophy or ethics."--Professor C.Y. Cheng, University of Hawaii"Finally a good translation!"--Kelley L. Ross, Los Angeles Valley College"Excellent translation, helpful notes, beautiful cover!"--John M. Koller, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
