Contemporary discussions on business and management strategies are not always that far apart from the leadership topics debated in pre-Qin China.

Daoism: An Introduction

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 06/14/2009 - 11:30
Anonymous's picture

‘Littlejohn organizes his introduction around the central metaphor of a spreading kudzu vine, whose roots, trunk, stalks, branches, and leaves grow beneath, in, around, and over the vast and complex terrain of Chinese culture. He does a marvellous job exploring the origins, developments, and transformations of Daoism by guiding readers through canonical texts, across historical contexts, and around expressions of Daoism in fine art, popular symbols, literature, ritual, and other forms of material culture.
