The Tao Te Ching is fundamental to the Taoist school of Chinese philosophy and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism and Neo-Confucianism. This ancient book is also central in Chinese religion, not only for Taoism but Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Taoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners have used the Tao Te Ching as a source of inspiration. Its influence has also spread widely outside East Asia, aided by hundreds of translations into Western languages.

Unusual among the scriptures of the world's religions, the Tao Te Ching is not a chronicle of gods and heroes. Instead, it is a series of meditations on the mysterious nature of the Tao--the Way, the guiding principle, the source of all existence. According to Lao Tzu (a name meaning "the old master"), the Tao is found where we would least expect it--not in the strong but in the weak; not in speech but in silence; not in doing but in "not-doing." Wise yet worldly, spiritual yet practical, the Tao Te Ching is beloved by seekers all the world over. Huston Smith says, "A testament to humanity's at-home-ness in the universe, it can be read in half an hour or a lifetime." This new edition features a lucid, poetic translation that makes the Tao Te Ching accessible to contemporary readers. In a review of various translations, TaoTeachingMe.com says: "It makes a great gift... Every other sentence is a memorable quote. This is our favorite lightweight travel edition [of the Tao Te Ching]."

The Path to Peace The Tao Te Ching is a series of meditations on the mysterious nature of the Tao--the Way, the guiding light, the very source of all existence. According to Lao Tzu (a name meaning "the old master"), the Tao is found where we would least expect it--not in the strong but in the weak; not in speech but in silence; not in doing but in "not-doing." Wise yet worldly, spiritual yet practical, the Tao Te Ching is beloved by seekers all the world over. This edition from Ancient Renewal is based on the 1919 public-domain translation by Dwight Goddard, significantly revised by Sam Torode to make this ancient work more accessible to contemporary readers. "This is the gift that ancient humans would give us if they saw us today. The best gift you could ever give anyone: Wisdom." --Jimmy of the Bright Insight YouTube channel, reviewing the Ancient Renewal edition of the Tao Te Ching.

Presenting the Large Print edition of the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu. Also available from Golding Books is The Essential Classics for Leaders: Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, The Art of War by Sun Tzu, Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, and The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli with an introduction by Nicholas Tamblyn. This collection is part of Golding Books' Essential Series. There are certain books of antiquity that have risen to the status of required readings for those interested in effective leadership. The Tao Te Ching has achieved this rare renown, influencing countless changemakers and leaders throughout history. A leader will be faced with all kinds of challenges, some unforeseen. These texts emphasize that the best way to command or sway others is through a prudence that does not always err on the side of leniency or severity, but rather on that of knowledge and flexibility. Along with strength of character, an effective leader also possesses the ability to adapt and therefore to take informed, needful, and decisive action. Both Taoism and Machiavellianism note that personal development and, by extension, business management are essentially careful thought followed by swift action. Unique among large print inspirational books for women and men, large print classic books (particularly large print philosophy books) and large print history books for seniors and younger adults as well as children, Tao Te Ching is essential reading for all interested in important and influential philosophical texts. Lao Tzu was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer born in the 6th-5th century BCE, reputed author of the Tao Te Ching (published 6th Century BCE) and founder of the School of the Tao or Taoism. The main source of information on Lao Tzu's life is a biography written by the historian Sima Qian (145-86 BCE), where he referred to earlier accounts, such as one noting that Lao Tzu was a contemporary of Confucius. However, some scholars doubt the historicity of Lao Tzu, and so his life, if he existed, remains shrouded in mystery.

In the 1930s a band of smart and able young men, some still in their twenties, helped Franklin D. Roosevelt transform an American nation in crisis. They were the junior officers of the New Deal. Thomas G. Corcoran, Benjamin V. Cohen, William O. Douglas, Abe Fortas, and James Rowe helped FDR build the modern Democratic Party into a progressive coalition whose command over power and ideas during the next three decades seemed politically invincible. This is the first book about this group of Rooseveltians and their linkage to Lyndon Johnson's Great Society and the Vietnam War debacle. Michael Janeway grew up inside this world. His father, Eliot Janeway, business editor of Time and a star writer for Fortune and Life magazines, was part of this circle, strategizing and practicing politics as well as reporting on these men. Drawing on his intimate knowledge of events and previously unavailable private letters and other documents, Janeway crafts a riveting account of the exercise of power during the New Deal and its aftermath. He shows how these men were at the nexus of reform impulses at the electoral level with reform thinking in the social sciences and the law and explains how this potent fusion helped build the contemporary American state. Since that time efforts to reinvent government by "brains trust" have largely failed in the U.S. In the last quarter of the twentieth century American politics ceased to function as a blend of broad coalition building and reform agenda setting, rooted in a consensus of belief in the efficacy of modern government. Can a progressive coalition of ideas and power come together again? The Fall of the House of Roosevelt makes such a prospect both alluring and daunting.

For nearly two generations, this translation of the Tao Te Ching has been the standard for those seeking access to the wisdom of Taoist thought. Now Jane English and her long-time editor, Toinette Lippe, have refreshed and revised the translation, so that it more faithfully reflects the Classical Chinese in which it was first written, while taking into account changes in our own language and eliminating any lingering infelicities. This beautiful oversized edition features over a hundred new photographs by Jane English that help express the vast spirit of the Tao. Also included is an introduction by the well-known writer and scholar of philosophy and comparative religion, Jacob Needleman. Lao Tsu’s philosophy is simple: Accept what is in front of you without wanting the situation to be other than it is. Study the natural order of things and work with it rather than against it, for to try to change what is only sets up resistance. Nature provides everything without requiring payment or thanks. It does so without discrimination. So let us present the same face to everyone and treat them all as equals, however they may behave. If we watch carefully, we will see that work proceeds more quickly and easily if we stop "trying," if we stop putting in so much extra effort, if we stop looking for results. In the clarity of a still and open mind, truth will be reflected. Te—which may be translated as "virtue" or "strength"—lies always in Tao meaning "the way" or "natural law." In other words: Simply be.

Although translations and interpretations of the Tao te Ching abound and new editions are released yearly, few accomplish the hard work of linking and bridging the Tao's profound message to the needs of modern readers. There may be a profusion of versions, but our lives and our world reflect little of the deep, transformative potential of this important text. Marc S. Mullinax's new translation grows from extensive teaching experience and combines a deep understanding of the Tao's fourth-century BCE Chinese context with an exciting two-part application of that text to contemporary life. First, each of the eighty-one verses is joined by a richly curated array of quotes, sayings, poems, and stories from wisdom traditions around the globe. With quotes ranging from Emerson to Pink Floyd, and from the apostle Paul to Margaret Atwood, the Tao's meaning comes alive in conversation with others. Second, a brief reflection puts the verse in historical context and highlights the transformative power of Wu-Wei, the "non-interfering action, perfectly timed, to promote peace and prevent injury," to bring joy and justice to a hurting world.
