The authentic Confucius : a life of thought and politics by Ann-ping Chin( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,162 libraries worldwide
For more than 2,000 years, Confucius has been an inseparable part of China's history. Yet despite this fame, Confusius the man has been elusive. In this book the author has worked through the most reliable Chinese texts on her quest to sort out what is really known about Confucius from the reconstructions and guesswork that muddled his memory. Here the author illuminates the political and social climate in which Confucius lived. She explains how Confucius made the transition from court advisor to wanderer, and how he reluctantly became a professional teacher as he refined his judgment of human character and composed his vision of a moral political order. The result is a book that shows how Confucius lived and thought: his habits and inclinations, his relation to the people of the time, his work as a teacher and as a counselor, his worries about the world and the generations to come

This book is the compilation of information gleaned from extensive interviews conducted by the author in 1979 and again in 1984, including hundreds of Chinese children. Singly and in groups, in school, at play, and at home, she talked with boys and girls ranging in age from six to sixteen, from many different backgrounds, and of startlingly different attitudes. The resulting book provides a rich understanding of the childhood experience in contemporary China

Confucius : a life of thought and politics by Ann-ping Chin( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 131 libraries worldwide
"For more than two thousand years, Confucius (551- 479 B.C.) has been a fundamental part of China's history. His influence as a moral thinker remains powerful to this day. Yet despite his fame and the perennial interest in his life and teachings, Confucius the man has been elusive, and no definitive biography has emerged. In this book, the scholar and writer Annping Chin negotiates centuries of reconstructions, guess-work, and numerous Chinese texts in order to establish an absorbing and original account of the thinker's life and legacy. [In this book] Chin brings the historical Confucius within reach so that he can lead us into his idea of the moral and explain his timeless teachings on family and politics, culture and learning. Confucius is the culmination of years of research, a book that makes an important and fascinating contribution to biography and Chinese history."--Book cover

"The first half of the book details the history of the prosperous Chang family from the turmoil of the Taiping Rebellion in the 1860s to the birth of Yuan-ho, the oldest sister, in 1907. From there, rather than writing conventional biographies of the four sisters, Chin mimics the structure of k'un-ch'i, a refined form of Chinese performance that showcases only a few scenes of an opera. In this style, drawing on voluminous family correspondence, diaries and interviews (all four sisters are still alive [in 2004]), Chin chooses each sister's most significant experience and expands upon it"--Publisher's Weekly, quoted in Amazon.com
