Synopsis: Acknowledged to be one of the definitive versions of the influential Chinese classic, this new translation reveals the text in its full glory and recaptures the flow and power of the original writings. One of the most important books in Chinese literature, its significance has reverberated throughout the centuries since the Han dynasty. Its powerful effect on Western society is second to none in terms of non-Western books. Here the Tao Te Ching's 80 chapters of wise sayings and commentaries on the self and our relation to society are sumptuously illustrated with contemporary works of art and are viewed not only individually but as part of a unifying pattern. Text in both English and Chinese includes background on Lao Tzu, the recognized author of the Tao Te Ching, plus a brief history of Taoism. Essential reading for anyone--even those who have read previous translations--with an interest in ancient wisdom.

About the Author: Man-Ho Kwok is the foremost practitioner of traditional Chinese religion in the UK. Trained for twenty years by both Taoist and Buddhist masters in Hong Kong, he is renowned as a scholar of Chinese religion and, together with Martin Palmer, has translated many ancient texts. Martin Palmer, the Director of the International Consultancy on Religion, Education and Culture (ICOREC), is an expert on interfaith work and author of many books including The Elements of Taoism and Living Christianity. He has translated numerous ancient texts, including many from China on which he has collaborated with Man-Ho Kwok. Jay Ramsay is a poet and found of the Chrysalis poetry project. He has published numerous books of poetry, including his main work, The Great Return, and is particularly interested in the role of the artist healer.
