The Analects of Confucius

The Analects (sayings) of Confucius are translated into modern English with copious footnotes and explanations to help the reader to understand the context of the Confucius and his disciples sayings.

To Confucius being a gentleman was so much more than meaningless compliment - it meant that a man had embraced a certain way of life including ideals such as hard work, respect and harmony.  

An ancient classic with a huge amount to say to a modern reader.
