The Analects

by Confucius, James Trapp
With a new cover design, this complete edition of the Analects, which is made up of 20 books of brief passages from Confucius and his disciples, is presented with a new introduction and new editorial notes.
The Analects of Confucius has been one of the most widely read and studied books in China for the last 2,000 years, and continues to have a substantial influence on thought and values today. His words largely concern ethics, morality within the family, within marriage and within government, social relationships, justice and sincerity, valor and virtue. But whether you regard this as high philosophy or self-help for all the ages, whether your interest is in Chinese culture or leadership, whether it is spirituality or success that occupies your thoughts, Confucius has wise and accessible things to say about them all. Beautifully produced in traditional Chinese binding and with a timeless design, Confucius: The Analects will appeal to anyone interested in philosophy, spirituality, and Chinese culture.

James Trapp is the author of Chinese Characters and Chinese Proverbs, and he also translated a new edition of Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. A Chinese-language graduate of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, he teaches and translates Mandarin and is a former education officer at the British Museum.
