Sima Qian and the Record of the Grand Historian
The Chinese have a strong tradition of a deep love and respect for history. Historical works were valued and studied by all scholars and rulers. From the earliest dynasties there were official historians in the court. It was their duty to make faithful records of important events happening in their day.
