A History of Chinese Literature (Illustrated) By Herbert A. Giles
eBook (ePub): $1.99

“This is the first attempt made in any language, including Chinese, to produce a history of Chinese literature. Native scholars, with their endless critiques and appreciations of individual... More > works, do not seem ever to have contemplated anything of the kind, realising, no doubt, the utter hopelessness, from a Chinese point of view, of achieving even comparative success in a general historical survey of the subject. The voluminous character of a literature which was already in existence some six centuries before the Christian era, and has run on uninterruptedly until the present date, may well have given pause to writers aiming at completeness. The foreign student, however, is on a totally different footing. It may be said without offence that a work which would be inadequate to the requirements of a native public, may properly be submitted to English readers as an introduction into the great field which lies beyond.”< Less
Sarvastivada Literature By Anukul Chandra Banerjee
eBook (PDF): $0.00

Classic study on the history and literature of the Sarvastivada Buddhist school in ancient Northern India. The part of most enduring importance is the detailed paraphrase summary including references... More > to the Tibetan translation of the Sarvastivada Vinayavastu. It should be noted that Banerjee here has not seperated 'Sarvastivadin' from 'Mulasarvastivadin' texts, which is probably for the best in a work of this sort because the nature of the distinction (if it was really a distinction at all) is very ambiguous and still subject to inconclusive debate. Apparently pages 24 to 89 are missing from this pdf, apologies for this. If you're desperate for the complete file, I may have the missing pages in jpeg format on backup disc, email me.< Less

The Chinese Kama Sutra is a compendium of Chinese classics on lovemaking. These texts are among the earliest treatises on the topic known to humanity, and are the only ones known to address the... More > fundamental role of sexuality in promoting health and healing. Deeply rooted in the Chinese perception of the universe, they complement and supplement the treatises on acupuncture, Oriental medicine and Taoism and are at the pristine origin of what will become Taoist sexuality. The Chinese Kama Sutra invites the reader in a journey towards health promotion. At the same time, it invites scholars such as cross-cultural specialists, and Oriental medicine practitioners to engage in further dialogs and research in their respective fields. Introducing the energetic concepts of prelude and of health and healing through 55 positions and 20 prescriptions, the Chinese Kama Sutra represents an indispensable adjunct in the world literature on sexuality and health promotion.< Less

Completed in 1989, it was the first detailed attempt to look at Chinese emotion metaphors using the Cognitive Linguistic Framework developed in Metaphors We Live By (Lakoff and Johnson 1980).

Does wisdom exist outside the margins of our accepted routines? Does knowledge flow in more ways than one? My book A Chinese Kid Named Santiago indirectly plays upon these themes. I wrote this book... More > over a span of ten years. What the reader observes in this work is a compilation of my life; a kaleidoscope of experience and feeling as wildly eclectic and divergent as life itself. I wrote this book as a cathartic expression of me. The creation of which was therapeutic in nature allowing me a mirror from which to reflect. With the release of this book I hope to offer others a catalyst from which to peer deeper into themselves, seeking a deeper level of understanding. As an educator I believe that people learn in more ways than just the lecture and the text book. Poetry and prose offer mediums of learning which resonate on different levels of human understanding. These levels are just as important as one’s analytical faculties. It is within this context that I present to you, A Chinese Kid Named Santiago.< Less
