LP (lp27) | 790 comments My copy of this book shows the author's name spelled as Joseph R. Levenson, not Joseph Richmond Levenson.

In addition:

His name as it appears on the jacket of Revolution and Cosmopolitanism is simply Joseph Levenson.

In Modern China and its Confucian Past it is Joseph Richmond Levenson.

I should note that Goodreads also has the author listed as Joseph R Levenson without punctuation after the middle initial.

What would be the best way to ensure that readers can easily access all works by this author who has published under three different versions of his name?

Ayshe | 3032 comments Fuller version of the name is preferred if author ever published with it. "Joseph Richmond Levenson" had already filled out profile, I merged to that.
