Descriptions

Judge Dee was a historical person. His full name was Dee Jen-djieh [also Di Renjie] and he lived from A.D. 630-700. In the latter half of his career, he became a Minister of State, and through his wise counsels exercised a beneficial influence on the internal and external affairs of the T'ang Empire.However, it is chiefly because of his reputation as a detector of crime, acquired while serving as district magistrate, that his name lives on among the Chinese people. Today the Chinese still consider him their master-detective, and his name is as popular with them as Sherlock Holmes is with us.Although the stories told [in the series] are entirely fictional, I utilized some data from old Chinese crime literature, especially a thirteenth-century manual of jurisprudence and detection which I published some ten years ago in an English translation.Robert van Gulik, 1967 [from Judge Dee at Work]Celebrated Cases of Judge Dee (Dee Goong An) was an 18th century Chinese novel of three inter-related cases translated by Robert van Gulik into English. This inspired to create his own series of stories. The stories are best read in chronological order, as they refer to one another, although they can stand on their own. (English, Unclassified)
