Summary

Accessible to today's students, this anthology of readings is a survey of Asian thought-in India and China. It strikes a balance between major and minor figures, and features the best available translations of texts-complete works or complete sections of works-which are both central to each thinker or school and are widely accepted to be part of the emerging Asian canon. Introductions to each historical period and to each thinker, photographs, and a timeline help to keep students focused throughout.
