Before Confucius studies in the creation of the Chinese classics by Edward L Shaughnessy ( )
8 editions published between 1977 and 1997 in English and held by 1,687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Edward L. Shaughnessy examines the original composition of China's oldest books, the Classic of Changes, the Venerated Documents, and the Classic of Poetry. By describing the original contexts in which these books were written and what they meant to their original authors and readers, this work sheds light on both the degree to which Chinese culture already was literate by 1000 BC, and also on how the later classical tradition eventually diverged from these origins."--BOOK JACKET
Sources of Western Zhou history inscribed bronze vessels by Edward L Shaughnessy ( )
8 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The thousands of ritual bronze vessels discovered by China's archaeologists serve as the major documentary source for the Western Zhou dynasty (1045-771 B.C.). These vessels contain long inscriptions full of detail on subjects as diverse as the military history of the period, the bureaucratic structure of the royal court, and lawsuits among the gentry. Moreover, being cast in bronze, the inscriptions preserve exactly the contemporary script and language. This text provides historiography and interpretation of these objects. By demonstrating how the inscriptions are read and interpreted, the author makes accessible in English some of the most important evidence about life in ancient China
Rewriting early Chinese texts by Edward L Shaughnessy ( )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rewriting Early Chinese Texts examines the problems of reconstructing and editing ancient manuscripts that will revise - indeed "rewrite" - Chinese history. It is now generally recognized that the extensive archaeological discoveries made in China over the last three decades necessitate such a rewriting and will keep an array of scholars busy for years to come. However, this is by no means the first time China's historical record has needed rewriting. In this book, author Edward L. Shaughnessy explores the issues involved in editing manuscripts, rewriting them, both today and in the past."--BOOK JACKET
