The Anarchist Cookbook written and copyright by William Powell.

In Hawaii, I own the original William Powel book from the 1971 edition, and still sitting inside the special edition metal container!

This book contains instructions for the manufacture of explosives, rudimentary telecommunications phreaking devices, and other counter terrorism items.
A new copyright owner, Steven Schragis in 1991, whom decided to stop publishing it because the book has no "positive" social purpose.
Then in 2002 the copyright had been sold and a new revised publication being dated October 16, 2012
(2002/2013? hmm..)  

The 2002 revision shows it's been edited, chapters missing and many items removed from the original 1971 edition.
That's my favorite china book; The Anarchist Cookbook, original volume 1971, rare special edition

The 1971 issue which gives detailed recipe's of ancient medicines holding two full chapters dedicated to China's long history in medical remedies. I can't understand why it was removed from the 2002 revised book because, in my opinion its the most useful part in the book.

This is my only Chinese book luckily written in English.
Without doubt very informative if you wannabe up dated!

Twentyfive percent out of nothing is still nothing!

I am not a bookworm and the"Romance of The Three Kingdoms" is my favorite Chinese book.I have read it more than 10 times. Mr. Zhuge Liang's magically vast wisdom tremendously intoxicates me. His knowledge  ranges from geographical,meterological fields to Chinese culture alongside with martial tactics.In a nutshell, he is the god of intelligence.
