BOOK REVIEW Order in Early Chinese Excavated Texts: Natural, Supernatural, and Legal Approaches. By Zhongjiang Wang. Translated by Misha Tadd. London: Palgrave Macmillian, 2016. Pp. 240. Hardcover $84.99, ISBN 978-1-349-56819-2. Reviewed by Thomas Michael Beijing Normal University firstname.lastname@example.org Order in Early Chinese Excavated Texts represents a selection of essays composed by Wang Zhongjiang of Beijing University, edited and translated by Misha Tadd. Its appearance comes on the heels of a separate book-length selection of various other of Wang’s essays translated by Livia Kohn, entitled Daoism Excavated: Cosmos and Humanity in Early Manuscripts (St. Petersburg, FL: Three Pines Press, 2015). The proximity of the publications of these two English-language works is important to note. It demonstrates the growing international renown of Wang, a foremost expert on the reading and interpretation of early Chinese excavated texts. Both works handily display his erudite mastery in placing the content of excavated texts within the philosophical discourse of early Chinese received writings, thereby shedding new light on the growth and development of early Chinese religion and philosophy. In 2011, Wang published 简帛文明与古代思想世界 Civilization of Bamboo-Silk and the World of Ancient Thought (Beijing: Beijing Daxue Chubanshe, 2011), with twenty chapters in nearly 600 pages. Wang
