产品描述

This book collects 18 translated stories from the Chinese masterpiece Records of the Historian. Begun by Sima Tan and completed by his son Sima Qian, Records of the Historian is considered to be among the most influential works in Chinese history. Translated into English in a highly accessible and entertaining manner,  the book is based on historical research that spans thousands of years. Each chapter features a prominent Chinese figure, providing insight into society, politics and palace intrigues across dynasties.

Unlike many English language translations, this volume also includes a simplified Chinese text. If you are learning or already speak Chinese, this book can also be a wonderful language resource. At China Books also have an English-Chinese version of the Records of the Historian with the original Classical Chinese too. You can check that book out here.
