Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The Three Kingdoms is the epic saga of loyalty and treachery, brotherhood and rivalry--and the deeds of legendary heroes and villains during one of the most tumultuous periods in Chinese history. Considered the greatest of the "Four Great Classics" of Chinese literature, The Three Kingdoms is still read by millions in China and throughout Asia. In addition to being considered a great work of literature, many Chinese read it as a guide to success in life and business and many foreigners read it to better understand the core attributes that make up Chinese society. The story of the struggles of Liu Bei and his allies against the treacherous attempts of Cao Cao to steal away the throne as the Han Dynasty comes to a close have captivated readers for many centuries. This dynamic new translation will appeal as much to modern readers who find the twists and turns of Game of Thrones so compelling as the original did to its first readers over 500 years ago. This second volume introduces Liu Bei's greatest ally, his advisor Zhuge Lian, a master strategist whose plotting and stratagems allow Liu Bei to claim victory after victory in the never-ending battle for dominance in Warring States era China"-- Provided by publisher.
