Yuan Dao : tracing Dao to its source( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yuan Dao is a subversive document that challenged the autocratic aspirations of one of China's most powerful emperors. Its presentation set in motion a family tragedy in which the compiler, the most celebrated patron of literature of his age, fell victim to the expansionist politics of his uncle, the "Martial" emperor. Yuan Dao, complete here with English translation and critical Chinese text, is a remarkable distillation of earlier Daoist ideas found in the popular Daodejing (Tao Te Ching) and Shuangzi (Chuang-tzu) texts
Sun Pin : the art of warfare by Bin Sun( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and Chinese and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lost for some 2,000 years and rediscovered only by chance in 1972, Sun Pin: The Art of Warfare is now recognized as one of the essential texts of classical Chinese military philosophy. In this new edition, D. C. Lau and Roger T. Amers, eminent scholars of Chinese philosophy and widely respected translators, offer a comprehensive translation of the Sun Pin texts, along with extensive notes and commentary. The publication of this volume returns the work of one of the great military innovators to the canon of Chinese literature. Sun Pin essentially a philosopher of the battlefield, ponders such key concepts as the exemplary ruler, the importance of strategy and morale, and the advantages to be gained from adaptability, display, and discretion. Yet these texts are also clearly intended to be practical and to be used to maximum effect on the battlefield. As Sun Pin writes, "for one who has really mastered the way of warfare, his enemy can do nothing to escape death." This new edition of Sun Pin: The Art of Warfare includes not only the sixteen chapters and fragments of the main text recovered at Yin-ch'ueh-shan in 1972, but also fifteen supplementary chapters and three extracts from the encyclopedic tradition

The way of Lao Tzu (Tao-tê ching) by Laozi( Book )

3 editions published between 1963 and 2001 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a completely fresh and poetic version of the twenty-five-hundred-year-old Chinese spiritual classic, by one of America's most thought-provoking writers. Moved by a lifelong love for the Tao Te Ching, the novelist and poet Ursula K. Le Guin has been working on this version of the text since the 1950s. Scholar J.P. Seaton has added expert linguistic guidance to her work, bringing to it an equally passionate commitment to scholarly accuracy. Together they have created a translation that is unlike any seen before. Le Guin's version captures all the brilliance of Lao Tzu's poetry while conveying with immediacy and clarity the astonishing depth of his spiritual insights. It also corrects many of the distorted views of Lao Tzu's philosophy, freeing it from gender-bias and revealing its universal relevance. This new version is sure to be welcomed by the many readers of the Tao Te Ching, as well as those coming to the text for the first time
