The I Ching (Book of Changes): A Critical Translation of the Ancient Text
The Book of Changes (I Ching, Yijing or Zhouyi), one of the most influential of China’s ancient texts, became a world classic beginning in the 1960ies. Yet both students and scholars often find the work formidably obscure. Geoffrey Redmond, author of a guide to teaching the I Ching, makes use of his dual background in English literature and the archaic Chinese language to produce a lucid translation. Incorporating newly excavated texts and advances in Chinese historical linguistics and providing concise line-by-line explanations, it succeeds in making the 3,000 year old classic understandable today for both scholars and students.
