This version of the Han Feizi is meant primarily for those who want to start reading his texts. I recommend this for beginners in Chinese legalism. Furthermore, this can be used as a supplementary text for other versions of Han Feizi.
If you are looking for a version at an academic level, then I recommend using a text translated by Van Norden or PJ Ivanhoe. Account Options Sign in. My library Help Advanced Book Search.

Trenchant, sophisticated, and cynical, Han Feizi has been read in every age and is still of interest today when people are more than ever concerned with the nature and use of power. His handbook for the ruler deals with the problems of strengthening and preserving the state, the way of the ruler, the use of power, and punishment and favor.
Ironically, the ruler most influenced by Han Feizi, the king of Qin, eventually sent Han Feizi to prison, where he later committed suicide. User Review – Flag as inappropriate This version of the Han Feizi is meant primarily for those who want to start reading his texts.
