Stratagems of the Warring States 1

Stratagems of the Warring States

The Zhanguoce "Stratagems of the Warring States" is a collection of anecdotes and discourses, mostly between rulers and a minister, from the Warring States period (5th cent.-221 BCE). The stories have been collected and arranged by the early Former Han period  (206 BCE-8 CE) scholar Liu Xiang who selected the stories from six different books about the so-called coalition advisors (zonghengjia ). It is not known which parts of the modern Zhanguoce are derived from such books, or from the other eleven books of coalition advisors listed in the Hanshu  (30 Yiwenzhi ). These are, including that of the Qin and early Han periods:

Suzi "Master Su (Qin)" by Su Qin in 31 chapters
