Sources of Chinese Tradition: From 1600 Through the Twentieth Century free pdf For four decades "Sources of Chinese Tradition" has served to introduce Western readers to Chinese civilization as it has been seen through basic writings and historical documents of the Chinese themselves. Now in its second edition, revised and extended through Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin-era China, this volume retains its wide selection of source readings on history, society and thought in the world's largest nation. China scholar Wm. Theodore de Bary - who edited the first edition in 1960 - and his coeditor Richard Lufrano have revised and updated the second volume of Sources to reflect the interactions of ideas, institutions and historical events from the 17th century up to the present day. Beginning with Qing civilization and continuing to contemporary times, volume II brings together key source texts from more than three centuries of Chinese history, with opening essays by China authorities providing context for readers not familiar with the period in question.
