Updated with a new foreword by Moss Roberts for this fifteenth
anniversary edition, "Three Kingdoms" tells the story of the
fateful last reign of the Han dynasty (206 B.C. A.D. 220), when the
Chinese empire was divided into three warring kingdoms. Writing
some twelve hundred years later, the Ming author Luo Guanzhong drew
on histories, dramas, and poems portraying the crisis to fashion a
sophisticated, compelling narrative that has become the Chinese
national epic. This abridged edition captures the novel's intimate
and unsparing view of how power is wielded, how diplomacy is
conducted, and how wars are planned and fought. As important for
Chinese culture as the Homeric epics have been for the West, this
Ming dynasty masterpiece continues to be widely influential in
China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam and remains a great work of world
