    In this engaging volume, Daniel Gardner explains the way in which the Four Books--GreatLearning, Analects, Mencius, and Maintaining Perfect Balance--have been read and understood bythe Chinese since the twelfth century. Selected passages in translation are accompanied byGardner's comments, which incorporate selections from the commentary and interpretation of therenowned Neo-Confucian thinker, Zhu Xi (1130-1200). This study provides an ideal introduction tothe basic texts in the Confucian tradition from the twelfth through the twentieth centuries. Itguides the reader through Zhu Xi's influential interpretation of the Four Books, showing how Zhu,through the genre of commentary, gave new coherence and meaning to these foundational texts.Since the Four Books with Zhu Xi's commentary served as the basic "textbook" for Chineseschooling and the civil service examinations for more than seven hundred years, this bookillustrates as well the nature of the standard Chinese educational curriculum.
