Foreword to Volume Two
Through the kind assistance given by the Text Book Committee of
UNESCO the publication of this Second Volume of The Works of Han Fei Tzŭ
has been made possible twenty years after the publication of the First Volume.
It is an encouraging sign of the demand for the work that the First Volume has
just been exhausted and a re-issue, also with the aid of UNESCO, has been
necessitated. Unfortunately it was not given to the translator, Wen-Kuei Liao,
to live to see the Second Volume of his work in print, nor has the Introductory
Volume, planned by him, ever been issued.
The publisher's thansk are due to Milton Rosenthal for his help
in negotiating the grant from UNESCO, and to Dr. Neville Whymant for reading the
proofs, compiling the Index and suggesting minor alterations in the text.
London, October, 1959.
