              The Four Chinese Classics: Tao Te Ching, Chuang Tzu, Analects, Mencius

              The Four Chinese Classics: Tao Te Ching, Chuang Tzu, Analects, Mencius (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Translated by Hinton, David

              The books collected in this volume represent the first time since the mid-nineteenth century that the four seminal masterworks of ancient Chinese thought have been translated as a unified series by a single translator. Hinton's award-winning experience translating a wide range of... ancient Chinese poets makes these books sing in English as never before. But these new versions are not only inviting and immensely readable, they also apply much-needed consistency to key philosophical terms in these texts, lending structural links and philosophical rigor heretofore unavailable in English. Breathing new life into these originary classics, Hinton's new translations will stand as the definitive texts for our era. Perhaps the most broadly influential spiritual text in human history, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching is the source of Taoist philosophy, which eventually developed into Ch'an (Zen) Buddhism. Equally influential in the social sphere, Confucious' Analects is the source of social wisdom in China. The Chuang Tzu is the wild and wacky prose complement to the Tao Te Ching. And with its philosophical story-telling, the Menicius adds depth and complexity to Confucius' vision.

              In pursuit of the story behind a beguiling drink Granville Greene embarks on a journey through the remote Mexican highlands to discover the histories and traditions behind this smoke-drenched agave distillate that has quickly become a craft cocktail darling, rivaling even its bet...ter-known cousin tequila. Greene visits the Zapotec, Mixtec, and Nahua communities, sipping rare, small-batch mezcals poured straight from the stills of mezcaleros who craft the drink using local agaves, family recipes, and production methods passed down through generations. A seasoned travel writer, Greene brings readers along on his captivating quest for the soul of the oldest distillate in The Americas, detailing the sights, smells, and intoxicating flavors of the mountainous Oaxaca and Guerrero states, their lively markets and rural distilleries. He turns his journalist s eye to the broader context of impoverished villages in a rapidly changing economic and political landscape, exploring the gold-rush style surge of single-village mezcals as luxury exports, and the subsequent overharvesting that threatens the diversity of wild agave crops in the region. Para todo mal mezcal, y para todo bien tambien! So goes the Mexican proverb: For everything bad mezcal, and for everything good as well!

              The extraordinary story of the Russian slave girl Roxelana, who rose from the role of concubine to become the only queen in Ottoman historyIn Empress of the East, historian Leslie Peirce tells the remarkable story of a Christian slave girl, Roxelana, who was abducted by warriors ...at age twelve from her Ruthenian homeland, and brought to the harem of Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent in Constantinople. Suleiman became besotted with her, and forsook all other mistresses. Then, in an unprecedented step, he made her the first and only queen in the Ottoman court. Although shrouded in scandal, the canny and sophisticated Roxelana became a shrewd diplomat and administrator, who helped Suleyman keep pace with a changing world in which women - from Queen Elizabeth to Catherine de Medici - increasingly held the reins of power. In Empress of the East, Pierce reveals the true history of an elusive figure who pushed the Ottoman Empire towards modernity.

              After teaching us classical mechanics and quantum mechanics, physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math; enligh...tening drawings; and the same fictional counterparts, Art and Lenny, that led us through Quantum Mechanics, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a must-read for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to deepen their knowledge of physics' deepest truths.
