Discussion -> Textual issues -> Wrong dynasties in the text.

This thread relates to:

Currently has 商, Shang and 周, Zhou.

It should be
故夏、商以興,桀、紂以亡。
Replacing 商, Shang with 夏, Xia and 周, Zhou with 商, Shang, since the text later goes on to attribute Jie and Zhou as the last rulers to the respective states, which in this case were Xia and Shang, not Shang and Zhou.

I think this error may have its source in "The Library of Chinese Classics", Vol.I, page 271, which is where I believe this text was transcribed from.

Posted by: sivartnosredna7 (Travis Anderson)I have confirmed that the error is also in Knoblock & Riegel's translation from 2000, so the error may be quite old, or as recent as 2000.
