Summary
  • "This is a reference work about the 6,000 individual men and women known to us from China's formative first empires. Over decennia Michael Loewe (Cambridge, UK) has collected all biographical information available. His work deals not only with those who set the literary forms and intellectual background of traditional China, such as writers, scholars, historians, and philosophers, but also those officials who administered the empire and the military leaders who fought in civil warfare of with China's neighbours. The work draws on primary historical sources as interpreted by Chinese, Japanese, and Western scholars and is supplemented by archaeological finds and inscriptions. By devoting extensive entries to each of the emperors, the author provides the reader with the necessary historical context and gives insight into the dynastic disputes and their far-reaching consequences. No comparable work exists for this important period of Chinese history. Without exaggeration, this book is a real must for historians of both China and other cultures."--Jacket
