Need Help in Historiography of Qin Shi Huang (嬴政)
Thread poster: Majestic

Hi

I am currently a student and I am doing a project on the historiography of Qin Shi Huang. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about his historiography, besides that page on Wikkipedia?

Also does anyone have any free English translation of the part on Qin and Qin Shi Huang in the Shi ji or any Chinese texts? The reason I ask this, is that I am unable to translate Chinese and the English translations of this book is too expensive in my country and unavailable in the library.

Thanks

Hi

Thanks for your reply. The first link works, but unfortunately I cannot read Chinese - I have only learnt to speak it at the moment. The second link works, but the connected link to Sima Qian's Records doesn't work. It is a broken link. Do you have any other links to an English translation of the Qin part of the Shiji?

Thanks again
