A collection of 12 articles by eight authors discussing the state of Chu, which was absorbed into China's first empire in the second century BCE. The book's three parts cover: 1. Perspectives in defining Chu culture (geography, archaeology, and art); 2. State and society (social and political organization, ideology, law, and towns and trade); 3. The spirit of Chu (late Chu religion, and the Chuci). An appendix contains a translation of the Chu Silk Manuscript.

A copy of this book is held in the Governor Gary Locke Library, Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, Seattle, Washington, USA.
