Review:

"This book will appeal to both scholars of Chinese philosophy and readers generally interested in Confucianism and its relevance to contemporary Chinese society. The authors have succeeded in popularizing the Confucian ideas by interpreting them in profound and scholastic ways. For its glimpse of Confucian ideas and for its rethinking of issues related to Confucianism, Chinese history, and Chinese society, it will also be a useful handbook for historians and students of cultural studies." -- International Institute for Asian Studies
