By A Customer on Nov. 15 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best books currently on the market concerning the study of the I Ching. The book gives an in-depth review of the I Ching's evolution and history. It also gives a very enlightening review of many of the current I Ching translations on the market.
This book is for the more serious student of the I Ching. It is not very useful for individual divination using the I Ching. There are other books that are more useful for divination.

There is everything here about the history of the I Ching. Richard Rutt has used among others the studies by Kunst on the oldest meaning of the book (that was lost to the later Confucian commentators of the Ten Wings) to attempt a translation that comes as close as possible to the original meaning. . This brings Bronze Age China back to life, a civilization that even performed human sacrifices (quite shocking!) A must for all serious I Ching lovers.

HASH(0xa684cd74) out of 5 stars The best book on the I Ching Jan. 30 2000
By Fu Xi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read many books on I Ching but this is the best byfar. It is the only one which made its history as a text clear tome. The so called Zhouyi is the portion set in writing during the Zhou(later Chinese bronze age). Most of what we consider I Ching is actually commentary from the Han, half a milennium later. Rutt restores the early primitive text which was used for such things as deciding the auspicious occasion for (human?) sacrifices. Rutt sees the Zhou Yi as neither moral or spiritual. We can then see how the Confucian tradition made something quite different of the text with the addition of the Ten Wings. Rutt translates the original Zhou text which consists of what are the hexagram statements and line texts in later forms.He also translates the Ten Wings separately, rather than mixed with the Zhou text as Wilhelm and later Chinese editions do. Rutt's book is the best on the actual, as opposed to mythical text of the Changes. Yet he includes its history in the west and a section entitled, the Fascination of Zhouyi. If you have a serious interest in I Ching, you MUST read this book. It does not supercede the classic Wilhelm/Baynes translation but does far better in letting us see it also as an ancient Chinese text.

HASH(0xa69c5b28) out of 5 stars Uniquely evidence-based Sept. 23 2014
By Avery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are many translations of the I Ching that provide the traditional, medieval account (don't pay for one; you can get James Legge's good translation for free). There are also dozens of translations that attempt amateur psychoanalysis. There are even a few that translate a higher level of traditional commentary. But this translation is the ONLY one in existence that actually explains the original meaning of the I Ching according to real historical and archaeological evidence. It summarizes decades of research that otherwise can only be found in obscure Sinological journals. Absolutely worth owning.
