Excerpt:Anthony Wong Anthony Wong Chau-Sang (born Anthony Perry on 2 September 1961) is a Hong Kong Film Award -winning Hong Kong actor, screenwriter and film director. Biography Anthony Wong Chau-Sang was born to an English father and a Chinese mother. His father left his family when he was four, prompting Wong to use his mother's surname. He began his acting career when he joined ATV 's training programme and enrolled into the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts . Although he spoke little English while growing up, Wong states that he tended to be considered as "a foreigner" by Hong Kong people and film professionals, because his Caucasian ethnicity was very apparent early in his career; as he grew older, however, his features became "more Chinese". Wong has been a veteran of Hong Kong films for nearly 20 years. Wong is a talented and versatile actor who has played a variety of roles, yet it is his antagonistic roles which many fans in the West will remember him best. With hits such as Hard Boiled , The Heroic Trio and its sequel, as well as his Golden Horse -winning performance in the horrific The Untold Story (in which he played a real-life serial killer who made human meat buns out of his victims) Anthony shot to stardom. Anthony Wong stated in an interview that his mixed ethnicity initially caused him to be typecast as a villain , due to racism in the Hong Kong film industry . In 1994, he made another breakthrough performance in the action drama Rock n' Roll Cop . He also appeared in three of the Young and Dangerous films as Tai Fei, an enemy, and then, later a friend to Ekin Cheng 's Chan Ho Nam . In 1995, Wong made his di... ... Read more

Product Description
A collection of seminal primary readings on the social, intellectual, and religious traditions of China,has been widely used and praised for almost forty years as an authoritative resource for scholars and students and as a thorough and engaging introduction for general readers. Here at last is a completely revised and expanded edition of this classic sourcebook, compiled by noted China scholars Wm. Theodore de Bary and Irene Bloom. Updated to reflect recent scholarly developments, with extensive material on popular thought and religion, social roles, and women´s education, this edition features new translations of more than half the works from the first edition, as well as many new selections. Arranged chronologically, this anthology is divided into four parts, beginning at the dawn of literate Chinese civilization with the Oracle-Bone inscriptions of the late Shang dynasty (1571­1045 B.C.E.) and continuing through the end of the Ming dynasty (C.E. 1644). Each chapter has an introduction that provides useful historical context and offers interpretive strategies for understanding the readings.The first part, The Chinese Tradition in Antiquity, considers the early development of Chinese civilization and includes selections from Confucius´sthe texts of Mencius and Laozi, as well as other key texts from the Confucian, Daoist, and Legalist schools. Part 2, The Making of a Classical Culture, focuses on Han China with readings from the(), themajor Han syntheses, and the great historians of the Han dynasty. The development of Buddhism, from the earliest translations from Sanskrit to the central texts of the Chan school (which became Zen in Japan), is the subject of the third section of the book. Titled Later Daoism and Mahayana Buddhism in China, this part also covers the teachings of Wang Bi, Daoist religion, and texts of the major schools of Buddhist doctrine and practice. The final part, The Confucian Revival and Neo-Confucianism, details the revival of Confucian thought in the Tang, Song, and Ming periods, with historical documents that link philosophical thought to political, social, and educational developments in late imperial China. With annotations, a detailed chronology, glossary, and a new introduction by the editors,will continue to be a standard resource, guidebook, and introduction to Chinese civilization well into the twenty-first century. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Really good... Just a little tough
Really good, you can read the original sources of the Chinese tradition. However, I do not recommend the first volume if you are not really interested on difficult-to-understand-old-chinese-wording... This, of course, it is not the fault of the book but mine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Method for Understanding China
This work is thorough, but at the same time simple and concise. It is essentially a collection of documents that relate to important events in Chinese history with short background sections introducing most works and longer introductions when a new period of history is covered. I believe that this is currently the most complete single volume on the market as it runs from the early 1600's all the way up to 1989, covering the Qing Dynasty, its collapse, the Nationalist Revolution and later the Communist Revolution, up through the ideas behind the Tienanmen Square demonstrations and the modern reevaluation of Confucianism. If you only want one volume on modern Chinese history that focuses on the sources, I think this is probably the one to have.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sources of Chines Tradition, Vol 2
This book is excellent for anyone wanting to read primary source information.It is a great help for any college student or proffessor interested in the Chinese Culture.I highly recommend this to any one who is interested in Chinese history.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ancient Chinese History: Vol. 1
This book is a collection of readings dealing with ancient Chinese history, especially focusing on philosophy and religion.The readings are organized into chapters related to various stages in Chinese history.Early chapters cover antiquity, Confucius, Mo Tzu, and Taoism.Then comes Confucian tradition, the Legalists, the Imperial Order, the Universal Order, and the Economic Order.This is followed by the Great Han Historians, Neo-Taoism, and Buddhism.This volume is rounded out with the Confucian revival and neo-Confucianism.Each chapter begins with a short introduction essay that introduces the context and events of the time and goes to a selection of original texts on the topic at hand. At the beginning of the book is a chronological table of Chinese history from 2852 BC to 1849 AD that highlights various events in Chinese political philosophy.

This book is a great resource for the serious student of Chinese philosophy and culture.The essays and readings provide a unique window into Chinese thought.The authors assume that the reader will have a basic familiarity with the overall picture of Chinese history, and provide many details and insights into why history took the course that it did.I found the reading selections, drawn from such documents as the Analects of Confucius or historical documents like Ma tuan-Lin's Introduction to the Survey on the Land Tax, particularly illuminating.To find so many documents such as these presented in English, together with essays that explain their context and importance, is invaluable for the serious Asian studies scholar.

5-0 out of 5 stars all the classics and essentials
I've read a little of this and that about Chinese history and religion, and I needed a book to fill in the basics and the details. This was perfect.

First, the selections included excerpts of almost everything I'd ever heard of: Shang Oracle Bones, the Analects of Confucius and the Confucian classics including the I Ching; Mozi; the Tao Te Ching; Zhuangzi (who famously dreamed that he was a butterfly); Mencius; Xunzi; the Zuozhuan; Sun Tzu's art of war; all kinds of stuff about Chinese schools of Buddhism including the Lotus Sutra and the Flower Garden Sutra and the history of Guanyin and Wutai Shan; Li Po (Li Bo) and Tu Fu (Du Fu); and neo-Confucianism (which was so influential in Korea). In short, this is really, practically the "Eatern Canon" and the selections are deserving of such a label. I was in turns morally and intellectually challenged, uplifted, informed and surprised; but rarely bored and never disappointed.

Second, the introductory essays were exactly what I wanted to know: who might have written it, and when, and who read, and what it meant to them. For all that information, they were still brief and the bibliography was sufficient to help me chase the points that left me curious. An important thing these essays did was to cover the political, historical and social backgrounds (and foregrounds) of the texts, so I learned about Chinese history as well as literature and religion. If that is what you want to do, this book will serve you well.

The binding is excellent, and while the price might look steep I have to say it's a bargain considering what you get.

I didn't read Volume Two, and so I don't know if it is as good. It is certainly a lot smaller! ... Read more
