This volume of selections and commentary by the premier Western translator and interpreter of the "Chan-kuo Ts'e" contains all of the author's favorite pieces. It also features more complete warring states narratives, the "romances"--persuasions of four of the best-known figures, Fan Chu, Chang Yi, Su Ch'in, and Ch'un-shen Chun, augmented by biographical material from the "Shi-chi." This reader highlights both the nature of "Chan-kuo" "Ts'e," an important pre-Han collection, and its considerable pleasures.J. I. Crump is Professor Emeritus of Chinese literature, University of Michigan. He is also author "of Chinese Theater in the Days of Kublai Khan, Songs from Xanadu," and "Song-poems from Xanadu.""
