2007.066.562 Book "The Family (pinyin: Jia) is an autobiographical novel by Chinese author Ba Jin. It tells the story of an upper-class family in the city of Chengdu in the early 1920s. The novel was first serialized in 1931-2 and then released in a single volume in 1933. The serialization was originally titled Turbulent Stream, but had its name changed after Ba Jin released it as a single volume. The Family is probably Ba Jin's most famous and most popular work. It is still often read by many for its insights into the fengjian system prevalent in the early 20th century. The Family focuses on three brothers from the Gao family, Juexin, Juemin and Juehui, and their struggles with the oppressive autocracy of their feudalistic family. The idealistic, rash Juehui, the youngest brother, is the main protagonist, and he is frequently contrasted with the weak eldest brother Juexin, who gives in to the demands from his grandfather and carries on living a life he does not want to live. Juemin, the second brother, too has to fight to marry a cousin he loves, Qin" -- from Wikipedia. The Family Pa, Chin 1969 China Books and Periodicals

2007.066.571 Book "The Confucian Bible [the Analects, or Lun Yu] as herein presented is NEW in both form and outlook. In form, it is a departure from the traditional presentation,.... By numbering each section of each chapter in the familiar style of Christian Bibles..., and providing English/Chinese indices with Chinese/English glossaries, quick access to any key topic is achievable. In addition, a Comparitive Index of Confucian and Christian pprecepts on selected topics gives the religious leader and opportunity to note the similarities and contrasts in viewpoints between the two. As to Outlook,..it..can also be many things to many people: 1. A moral option fo those still searching for the meaning of life; 2. A pragmatic treatise to those without any formal religion who believe that virture is its own reward; 3. A non-theocentric code of conduct for concerned humans regardless of their religious affiliation or cultureal background; and 4. A revelation to those with Chinese ties who may not be proficient in Chinese." -- from the preface.

Chiang Yee is quoted as saying. ?In my books, I record my impressions and experiences, in words and in paint, preserving so far as my powers permit, the mood and feeling of the occasion. This is the Ching-hua-shui-jueh, reflecting the flower in the mirror or the moon on the water. Flowers fade, the moon wanes, but the reflections were real while they lasted.
