Tao Te Ching by Lao zi
Book DescriptionNo other English translation of this greatest of the Chinese classics can match Ursula Le Guin's striking new version. Le Guin, best known for thought-provoking science fiction novels that have helped to transform the genre, has studied the "Tao Te Ching " for more than forty years. She has consulted the literal translations and worked with Chinese scholars to develop a version that lets the ancient text speak in a fresh way to modern people, while remaining faithful to the poetic beauty of the work. Avoiding scholarly interpretations and esoteric Taoist insights, she has revealed the "Tao Te Ching "'s immediate relevance and power, its depth and refreshing humor, in a way that shows better than ever before why it has been so much loved for more than 2,500 years. Included are Le Guin's own personal commentary and notes on the text. This new version is sure to be welcomed by the many readers of the "Tao Te Ching " as well as those coming to the text for the first time.

Daodejing, Paperback (April 2016)
These 81 brief poems from the 5th century BCE make up a foundational text in world culture. Martyn Crucefix's superb new versions in English reflect - for the very first time - the radical fluidity of the original Chinese texts as well as placing the mysterious 'dark' feminine power at their heart.
Tao Te Ching, Paperback (August 1999)
In 1913, orientalist Leon Wieger translated the Tao-Te-Ching into French. For this edition Derek Bryce translated Wieger's French text into English. It offers commitment to both the original Chinese philosophies and Wieger's insights, as well as traditional commentaries.
