Praise For…

“Bai’s volume is a welcome addition to the variety of introductory texts on Chinese philosophy that have recently or are about to hit the market. . . . Bai raises a range of thought-provoking ideas while very clearly demonstrating that the ideas of Chinese political thinkers from the Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods resonate with many contemporary issues in political philosophy and have the potential to provide us with interesting and in some cases extremely different ways of looking at political and social organization.”
