Do not buy this book!,
This review is from: The Analects (Classics) (Paperback)
Amazon is really cheeky here - D.C Lau's translation of the Analects is an old standard. But if you click on this book you won't get that - you'll get some strange, anonymous translation that is certainly not D.C. Lau's, and which, naturally, lacks the fine introduction in D.C. Lau's 1979 original.
So make sure you click on the link to the 1979 edition, not any of the others. Amazon really needs to fix this as its a big problem - I assigned this book to my university students and half of them ended up with the wrong book.

It looks like this has been fixed. Dec 2014, I just went to the Kindle website, searched on 'The Analects' I bought and downloaded the only book which came up and it was indeed the original DC Lau 1979 edition. But thanks for the warning - I was glad that I checked.
