    A book by Ann A. Pang-White, Ph.D., philosophy professor and director of the Asian Studies Program at The University of Scranton was published recently.

    “The Confucian Four Books for Women,” published by Oxford University Press and translated with introductions, annotations, and notes by Dr. Pang-White, South Abington Township, is the first complete English translation of the Nü Shishu and the commentary of Wang Xiang. The 16th-century book is a female counterpart to the Sishu (Four Books) compiled by Zhu Xi. It includes four books by five women authors over a span of 1,600 years and provides a look at the history and evolution of Chinese women’s writing, education, identity, and philosophical discourse.
