East Meets West Volume Two is the second installment of the East Meets West Trilogy - a series of translations of Classical Chinese literature with the side theme of the EAST meets WEST, covering many of the most renowned philosophers, scholars and novelists from over 5,000 years in Chinese cultural history With its simple and beautiful prose, East Meets West Volume Two introduces westerners to the vast and complex superpower that is China. Bringing a warm human touch to the ancient literature she is so familiar with, Joan Chan invites readers to enjoy serious topics and lessons, recasting them with light-hearted feeling. This is not a book of skin and bone but of flesh and blood. Some chapters will make you smile and some will make you sigh. Whether you are a scholar or simply someone interested in ancient wisdom from the East, East Meets West Volume Two is a must-read book that promises an interesting and unique educational perspective. A retired teacher, Joan Chan was born in Hong Kong in 1935. She spent 10 years in Ireland and then 10 years in Canada before moving to the UK nearly 30 years ago. Liverpool is her hometown of choice. Having worked as a teacher, head teacher, community worker, editor, reporter, manager, news broadcaster, interpreter and translator, Joan retired in 1997, devoting all of her time, energy and humble pension to writing the East Meets West trilogy.
