  • About the Book
  • The Hawai‘i Reader in Traditional Chinese Culture is a collection of more than ninety primary sources—all but a few of which were translated specifically for this volume—of cultural significance from the Bronze Age to the turn of the twentieth century. They take into account virtually every aspect of traditional culture, including sources from the non-Sinitic ethnic minorities.

  • Reviews and Endorsements
    • An immensely important work in part because of the quality of the contributors and in part because of the design of the book. It should truly appeal to all those interested in the basics of Chinese civilization.

    • A truly excellent work; it will be widely used not simply because it is much needed but also because it will generate tremendous excitement in the classroom.
