Written by Sima Qian of the Western Han Dynasty, the Records of the Historian was the first general history in the form of a series of biographies to appear in China. It records the history of China from the most remote past, the era of the legendary founder of the Chinese nation Huangdi (Yellow Emperor) in prehistoric China to the reign of Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty. The book has 130 chapters, recording the progress of history by means of biographies of historical figures. It marked the start of biographical literature in China and had a far-reaching influence on the development of the historical and literary works of later generations. Sima Qian aimed at telling the whole truth, insofar as he could discover it, and in pursuit of that truth he scoured all available archives. As he composed his work, he included verbatim many of the records he had found, thereby providing modern historians with a wealth of documentary evidence that would otherwise have been lost, for many of the sources Sima Qian quoted, paraphrased, and cited exist today only in his history. The book is also a remarkable commentary on human pride, intrigue, strategy and revenge; it also has an eye for detail and anecdote. To cite just one case, a minister is humiliated and driven from his kingdom; and ultimately takes revenge, as prime minister of a neighboring kingdom, by forgiving his persecutor, inviting him to a banquet, and then forcing him eat a meal of hay and water. There is also a detailed description of the tomb of China's First Emperor (the central figure of this book, whose career becomes exemplary of the folly of brutality and suppression of free thought); which has since been made famous by the discovery of the ceramic army of Xian.

Records of the Historian was ranked by Lu Xun, China's literary giant of the 20th century, as the country's leading work of history. The 31 chapters for inclusion in the Selections are regarded as the most outstanding of those in the original work. Most of them are taken from the Liezhuan (biographies of important figures) section.

内容简介

《史记》是中国第一部纪传体通史,它是西汉史学家司马迁的隐忍发愤之作。它记述了上起黄帝,下至汉武帝三千年间的历史。全书共130篇,以人物为中心,通过人物传记勾勒历史发展的进程。它是中国传记文学的开端,被称为“史家之绝唱,无韵之离骚”,对后世史学和文学的发展都产生了深远影响。

本书所选31篇是《史记》中故事性强、极代表性的篇目,这些故事描写注重细节,且场面宏大,人物形象跃然纸上。在《史记》五体中,以七十列传的内容最为生动丰富,因此,本书所选篇目中,列传有很大比重。

本书由安平秋校勘并译成精炼的白话文,英译采用了杨宪益、戴乃迭夫妇的经典译本。
