Warring States Papers
Warring States Papers has a central focus on the methodology of text-based historical research, and includes examples of the application of basic historical and philological methods to texts in other traditions, including Homeric and Biblical Greek.
In the past, classical China has largely been viewed from the perspective of its own evolving tradition, and not on its own terms. The work of the Project, and thus the contents of the journal, seek to provide an alternative view, based on early rather than late evidence, representing of a more international perspective. The contents of WSP derive from the work of the Warring States Project at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and its colleagues at other institutions, from its foundation in 1993 to the present.
