The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume IX
The Memoirs of Han China, Part II519Skickas inom 5-8 vardagar.
Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.This volume of The Grand Scribe's Records includes the second segment of Han-dynasty memoirs and deals primarily with men who lived and served under Emperor Wu (r. 141-87 B.C.). The lead chapter presents a parallel biography of two ancient physicians, Pien Ch'ueh and Ts'ang Kung, providing a transition between the founding of the Han dynasty and its heyday under Wu. The account of Liu P'i is framed by the great rebellion he led in 154 B.C. and the remaining chapters trace the careers of court favorites, depict the tribulations of an ill-fated general, discuss the Han's greatest enemy, the Hsiung-nu, and provide accounts of two great generals who fought them. The final memoir is structured around memorials by two strategists who attempted to lead Emperor Wu into negotiations with the Hsiung-nu, a policy that Ssu-ma Ch'ien himself supported.

Nienhauser's latest volume is another indispensable addition to modern sinology, as well as a fitting tribute to an ancient historian. * China Review International *
Ssu-ma Ch'ien (145-ca. 86 B.C.) was an official at the court of the Han Emperor Wu (r. 141-87 B.C.), who was involved in the compilation of a mammoth historical project that resulted in this history, which came to be known as the Shih chi (The Grand Scribe's Records). William H. Nienhauser, Jr., is the Halls-Bascom Professor of Classical Chinese Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and editor of five previous volumes of The Grand Scribe's Records.
