"The short-lived Qin dynasty unified China in 2.21 B.C. and created an imperial legacy that lasted until 1911. The extraordinary story of the First Emperor, founder of the dynasty, is told in the Historical Records of Sima Qian, the Grand Historiographer and the most famous Chinese historian. He describes the Emperor's birth and the assassination attempt on his life, as well as the political and often brutal events that led to the founding of the dynasty and its aftermath. Sima Qian recounts the building of the Great Wall, the 'burning of the books', and the construction of the First Emperor's magnificent tomb, a tomb now world famous since the discovery of the terracotta warriors in 1974. Sima Qian's love of anecdote ensures that his history is never dull, and Raymond Dawson's fluent translation captures his lively and vivid style. Chronicling recent archaeological developments and questioning Sima Qian's biases, K.E. Brashier's preface highlights the importance of the Grand Historiographer's account and Dawson's translation in the twenty-first century."--Jacket

The scholars by Jingzi Wu( Book )
31 editions published between 1957 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 266 libraries worldwide
From the back cover: "One of the great Chinese novels, The Scholars, departs from the impersonal tradition of Chinese fiction, as the author makes significant use of autobiographical experience and models many characters on friends and relatives. An eighteenth century satire, it is outstanding among Chinese classic novels. The author mercilessly exposes the decadence of the literati produced by the feudal examination system, the disastrous effects of that institution, and the corruption of the feudal society. A literary masterpiece of the Ming Dynasty, this landmark work was the first in China to criticize social abuse."
