Jan Swearingen, a professor of English emerita at Texas A&M University, is the author of Rhetoric and Irony: Western Literacy and Western Lies, and the editor of Rhetoric, the Polis, and the Global Village. She coedited and contributed to a special symposium issue of College Composition and Communication titled "Double Trouble: Seeing Chinese Rhetoric through Its Own Lens" and has published widely on classical and religious rhetoric.

"Guiguzi is a challenging and difficult text even for native Chinese readers. Hui Wu did a fabulous job of translating it into English without losing the original meaning of the text while making it comprehensible to the English reader. Jan Swearingen's comparative chapter sheds light on both Western and Chinese rhetorical traditions."--Xing Lu, author of Rhetoric in Ancient China, Fifth to Third Century B.C.E.: A Comparison with Classical Greek Rhetoric

"How wonderful to have, at last, a crucial Chinese rhetoric text from the same era as Plato and Aristotle. 'Guiguzi, ' China's First Treatise on Rhetoric brings back to life, with careful scholarship, a foundational text and tradition. Hui Wu and C. Jan Swearingen together have wrought a work that promises to become a classic in the study of both Western and Chinese rhetoric."--Roberta Binkley, coeditor of Ancient Non-Greek Rhetorics
