The blue wolf : a novel of the life of Chinggis Khan by Yasushi Inoue( )

56 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the world's most ruthless warriors, Chinggis Khan conquered nearly all of Asia in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, transforming the scattered and impoverished Mongols into an exceptionally proud and powerful nation. In this riveting and thoroughly researched portrait, Japan's celebrated epic novelist drives at the root of the khan's great desires and insatiable appetite for supremacy. Beginning with his birth in 1162, The Blue Wolf follows the crucial alliances that led to Chinggis Khan's great campaigns in North China, Bukhara, and Samarkand, as well as the state of Khorazm. The khan was obsessed with his ancestry, not knowing whether he was the descendent of the blue wolf (mythical progenitor of the Mongols and the noble Borjigin line) or merely the bastard son of a Merkid tribesman. For Inoue Yasushi, Chinggis's ancestral anxiety lies at the center of his relentless push for empire. He struggled with his paternity as intensely as he fought his battles, and his victories stood as proof that the brave warrior was a true Mongol. The question of paternity also formed the largest wedge between Chinggis and his eldest son, Jochi, a boy born in captivity and of similarly questionable heritage. Hailed for its sophistication and rich imagining of a remote world, The Blue Wolf puts a human cast on a legendary force that changed Asia and the world

More than a thousand years ago, an extraordinary trove of early Buddhist sutras and other scriptures was secreted away in caves near the Silk Road city of Tun-huang. But who hid this magnificent treasure and why? In "Tun-huang," the great modern Japanese novelist Yasushi Inoue tells the story of Chao Hsing-te, a young Chinese man whose accidental failure to take the all-important exam that will qualify him as a high government official leads to a chance encounter that draws him farther and farther into the wild and contested lands west of the Chinese Empire. Here he finds love, distinguishes himself in battle, and ultimately devotes himself to the strange task of depositing the scrolls in the caves where, many centuries later, they will be rediscovered

The Hunting Gun follows the consequences of a tragic love affair. Told from the viewpoints of three different women, this is a story of the psychological impact of illicit love.

Confucius : a novel by Yasushi Inoue( Book )

20 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in French and English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yasushi Inoue, who has been aptly described as the Grand Old Man of Japanese letters, was also one of the most popular novelists in Japan. His novel Confucius (Koshi) topped sales of 700,000 copies in its first year of publication. The story is told through the eyes of Yen-chiang, a fictitious disciple of the Master, who, in his advanced years, lectures a younger generation of followers. Yen-chiang rescues Confucius from the obscurity of the past with a series of vivid set pieces. He guides his listeners - and the reader - across the vast Chinese landscape and the turmoil of the warring states on an intimate journey with the Sage. The brilliantly crafted historical narrative is interwoven with famous lines from the Analects, immortalized through the centuries. Tantalizing glimpses of Confucius himself flicker from the pages, his extraordinariness harmonizing with his humanness." "An elusive yet lifelike portrait of Confucius emerges. At the same time the novel provides a stimulating introduction to the great philosopher for readers uninitiated in Far Eastern thought, and a refreshing new perspective for the veteran Sinologist."--Jacket
