On-line Resources Related to the Yi Jing

Prof. Richard Smith of Rice University writes:

I wanted to let you know that a free, word-searchable PDF version of the 98-page bibliography for my new book, The Qing Dynasty and Traditional Chinese Culture (Rowman and Littlefield, 2015), is now available at https://rowman.com/WebDocs/Smith_9781442221925_online%20bibliography.pdf

I might add that there are also a number of other items available for download at my History Department website (http://history.rice.edu/faculty/richard-j-smith). One of these is a long powerpoint on Ming-Qing “encyclopedias of daily use” (riyong leishu) (http://history.rice.edu/content/chinese-encyclopedias), which is also available at http://www.slideshare.net/smithrj/encyclopedias-in-late-imperial-china-2014-36080622 (where it occasioned some interesting and productive conversation). In addition, there are quite a few items on my History Department site related to the Yijing (see http://history.rice.edu/Yijing). Among these materials are a number of Asian-language glossaries for the names, titles and terms that appear in my two books on the Changes: The I Ching: A Biography (Princeton University Press, 2012) and Fathoming the Cosmos and Ordering the World: The Yijing (I-Ching, or Classic of Changes) and Its Evolution in China (University of Virginia Press, 2008).
