From the great and ancient cultures of Asia comes this fascinating collection of great prose, drama, poetry and scripture. Translated by scholars well versed in the original languages, the contents range from selections from the holy books of the Confucian, Taoist, Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic religions to a story from The Thousand and One Nights and verses from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
