Zuo tradition = Zuozhuan : commentary on the "Spring and autumn annals" by Andrew H Plaks( )

28 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zuo Tradition (Zuozhuan; sometimes called The Zuo Commentary) is China's first great work of history. It consists of two interwoven texts: the Spring and Autumn Annals (Chunqiu, a terse annalistic record) and a vast web of narratives and speeches that add context and interpretation to the Annals. Completed by about 300 BCE, it is the longest and one of the most difficult texts surviving from pre-imperial times. It has been as important to the foundation and preservation of Chinese culture as the historical books of the Hebrew Bible have been to the Jewish and Christian traditions. It has shaped notions of history, justice, and the significance of human action in the Chinese tradition, perhaps more so than any comparable work of Latin or Greek historiography with respect to Western civilization. This translation, accompanied by the original text with an introduction and annotations, will finally make Zuozhuan accessible to all"--Provided by publisher
A patterned past : form and thought in early Chinese historiography by David Schaberg( Book )

18 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this comprehensive study of the rhetoric, narrative patterns, aesthetics, and intellectual content of the Zuozhuan and Guoyu, David Schaberg reads these two collections of historical anecdotes as traces of a historiographical practice that flourished around the fourth century B.C.E. among groups that we now label "Confucian." Since the Han dynasty, the Zuozhuan has been considered a classic, an accurate account of the period it covers, and an expansion and explanation of the terse entries in the Spring and Autumn Annals. Because of the Guoyu's similarities to the Zuozhuan, it has shared in this prestige. Schaberg, in contrast, contends that the coherent view of early China found in these texts is an effect of their origins and the habits of reading they impose. The political and ethical attitudes dominating these texts suggest that they originated in circles associated with the courts of the day but outside the direct control of rulers. The narratives are so constructed as to demonstrate the truth and indeed the naturalness of these attitudes. Their dominant perspective is that of officials rather than rulers, and the anecdotes represent the efforts of a group of officials and ministers to argue for a moralizing interpretation of the events of Zhou history and for their own value as skilled interpreters of events and advisors to the rulers of the day."--Jacket

Text and ritual in early China by Project Muse( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In Text and Ritual in Early China, leading scholars of ancient Chinese history, religion, and archaeology consider the presence and use of texts in religious and political ritual. Through balanced attention to both the received literary tradition and the wide range of recently excavated artifacts, manuscripts, and inscriptions, their combined efforts reveal the rich and multilayered interplay of textual composition and ritual performance. Drawn across disciplinary boundaries, the resulting picture illuminates two of the defining features of early Chinese culture and advances new insights into their sumptuous complexity." "This work will be required reading for scholars of Chinese history, language, literature, philosophy, religion, art history, and archaeology."--Jacket
