This is a landmark new translation of the ancient Chinese oracle and book of wisdom. The I Ching, or Book of Change, has been consulted through the ages, in both China and the West, for answers to fundamental questions about the world and our place in it. The oldest extant book of divination, it has influenced such cultural icons as Bob Dylan, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Philip K. Dick, and Philip Pullman. The I Ching is turned to by millions around the world for insights on spiritual growth, business, medicine, genetics, game theory, strategic thinking, and leadership, and of course for the window it opens on China. This new translation, over a decade in the making, is informed by the latest archaeological discoveries and features a gorgeously rendered codex of divination signs. "Consistently eloquent and erudite, this rendition of the I Ching will endure as a classic of the twenty-first century and beyond". (Anthony C. Yu, Carl Darling Buck Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus in Humanities, The University of Chicago). "A creative masterpiece in itself, this translation by John Minford - one of the foremost cultural intermediaries of our day - throws fresh light on the great Chinese classic of the occult. It is a kind of unholy resurrection, a cable that disappears into the abyss of a darker time. In it the Bronze Age predicts to the Information Age the shadow of what is to come". (Timothy Mo, three-time finalist for the Booker Prize).
