Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804840954, Paperback)The Water Margin is one of the "Four Great Classical Novels" of Chinese literature. Based upon the story of the historical bandit Song Jiang and his companions, this epic tale of a rebellion against tyranny has been thrilling and inspiring readers for hundreds of years. A stirring tale of a band of men left with no choice but to become outlaws when faced with a tyrannical and unjust government, The Water Margin is the Chinese equivalent of Robin Hood and His Merry Men.
First gaining popularity in the West when it was translated by Pearl S. Buck as All Men Are Brothers, this classic tale is presented here in a detailed translation more faithful to the Chinese original.
