Chinese Thought from Confucius to Mao Tse-Tung
by Herrlee Glessner Creel




Overview -
Chinese philosophy before our Christian era is emphasized in this nontechnical summary of Chinese thought. Professor Creel also deals with Confucianism, the ideas of Mo-tsu and Mencius, Taoism, Legalism, and their variations and adaptations. As an introduction for the general reader, this book stands among the best.--China: A Resource and Curriculum Guide

There exists nowhere else such a well-written presentation of the main trends in Chinese thought in so brief a space. The text is not cluttered with Chinese names and the pages are not weighed down with footnotes--but the references are there for those who want them, with suggestions for further readings. This is a book which can be understood by those who have never read anything else about China.--The New York Times Book Review
