The 'I Ching' (the Book of Changes) is the Chinese classic that is best known and most widely read in Western civilization. Although it was written nearly 3000 years ago, its wisdom is still applicable to modern issues, and in its multi-metaphorical themes one may find insights and solutions to the personal, social, political and philosophical problems encountered today. Dr Hacker's 'I Ching Handbook' is the best compendium of study aids and state-of-the-art information now available on the ancient Book of Changes. It contains knowledge that allows the reader to achieve a deeper level of understanding of the 'I Ching'. It also provides the reader with a formal presentation of the subject that is not found elsewhere. The Handbook is excellently referenced with footnotes and appendices to meet the needs of the most assiduous scholar. It also contains 2 annotated bibliographies, a concordance to the most often studied Wilhelm/Baynes translation of the 'I Ching', and a glossary of technical terms. Features: * A comprehensive compendium of study aids to guide the reader through the most popular of ancient Chinese texts * Excellent references and 2 bibliographies for further reading * Gl
