From the Publisher“Thoughtful and even humorous, this is a promising choice for use in a university class but should also prove a helpful resource for experts.” (Religious Studies Review, 1 December 2012)
“Minor quibbles aside, Confucius and Confucianism: The Essentials is an excellent, well-written, and accessible introduction to the Confucian tradition, eminently suitable for both an undergraduate class and a general readership.” (Journal of Chinese Religions, 2012)
"Anyone who comes out of a course based on this book will have not simply an informed sense of Confucius and his legacy but also a critical sense of where that legacy is open to dispute or re-evaluation."
—T. H. Barrett, University of London
"This is an excellent survey of the history of Confucianism, incorporating philosophical issues and development and the received histories of key figures in the tradition."
—Jennifer L Oldstone-Moore, Wittenberg University
