The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume II : The Basic Annals of the Han Dynasty Hardback
Edited by Jr., William Nienhauser
This second volume of the ongoing annotated translation of Ssu-ma Ch'ien's Shih chi (The Grand Scribe's Records), widely acknowledged as the most important history of early China, contains the "basic annals" of five early Han-dynasty emperors.
The annals trace the first century of Han rule (206-ca. 100 BC) in a year-by-year account that focuses on imperial activities.
When this translation is completed, it will make available in English all 130 chapters of the Shih chi.
Volumes 1 and 7 were published by Indiana University Press in 1994.
