About the Author

Ssu-ma Ch'ien (145-ca. 86 BC) was an official at the court of the Han Emperor Wu (r. 141-87 BC), who was involved in the compilation of a mammoth historical project that resulted in this history, which came to be known as the Shih chi (The grand scribe's records).

William H. Nienhauser, Jr., is the Halls-Bascom Professor of Classical Chinese Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and editor of five previous volumes of The Grand Scribe's Records.

Reviews

Nienhauser's latest volume is another indispensable addition to modern sinology, as well as a fitting tribute to an ancient historian.--China Review International
