This is an extremely valuable study of the so-called bamboo slip Lao Tzu found among the recently discovered manuscripts from the village of Kuo-tien in Hupeh Province. Aside from having major implications for the formation of the celebrated foundational text of Taoism known as the Tao Te Ching, Robert Henricks's book is a model for the presentation and analysis of archeologically recovered texts. Only an acknowledged master of the Lao Tzu who has been doing intensive research on related issues for more than two decades could have brought out the bamboo-slip version in such an authoritative and timely fashion.
