  • Sashimi and History: On a New Translation of Du Fu
    • Abstract: To call Du Fu China’s greatest poet grossly underestimates his importance. First of all, his poetry is a summation of the literary tradition up to his time. Huang Tingjian 黃庭堅 (1045-1105) famously remarked that in Du Fu’s poems, “there is no word that does not derive from elsewhere” 無一字無來處.1 The vast richness of Du Fu’s language was not produced de novo but drawn from the whole cultural tradition up to his time, so that his work can serve as a kind of distillation of Chinese civilization up to the An Lushan rebellion. Du Fu’s work definitively established enduring forms and conventions of Chinese poetry. Yet his influence extended far beyond literary tradition; as a Confucian culture hero, Du Fu was a personal role ... Read More

  • Superior Chinese Proficiency and Global Debate
    • Abstract: Driven by the increase in demand from public and private sectors for language professionals, US government institutions have set out to produce professional proficiency language speakers identified by the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) scale’s Level 3 and higher as the primary instructional goal since the early 1980s (Leaver and Campbell 2015). Such increased demands challenged the language education output in higher education and gave rise to a proficiency movement subsequent to the continuous development of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages’ (ACTFL) proficiency guidelines throughout the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. The proficiency movement, together with the changes in national ... Read More

  • Representaciones de China en las Américas y la Península Ibérica ed. by
           Joaquín Beltrán Antolín, Francisco Javier Haro, and Amelia Sáiz López
           (review)
    • Abstract: Representaciones de China en las Américas y la Peninsula Ibérica is an edited volume that explores the representations of China in the Americas and the Iberian Peninsula mostly during the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. It focuses on the perceptions and reactions which emerge as a result of the role and presence of China in those regions. The book takes a multidisciplinary approach and heterogeneous theoretical positions, covering issues ranging from economics to cultural studies and from gender to international relations. The text consists of an introduction and three main sections and includes chapters in Spanish, English, and Portuguese.The introduction reads as an overview of the ... Read More

  • Maoism at the Grassroots: Everyday Life in China’s Era of High Socialism
           ed. by Jeremy Brown and Matthew D. Johnson (review)
    • Abstract: In her superb, succinct epilogue to this collection of essays by both Chinese and non-Chinese scholars of modern Chinese history, Vivienne Shue reflects on the belief by a large number of students of the People’s Republic’s history from 1949 to 1978, that the years immediately after this era were an intensely and ubiquitously politicized period, stating how limiting and unsatisfactory this attitude has proven to be in truly understanding the China that existed under Mao.Not that the hand of politics in the Mao era was not heavy. There is plenty of evidence in this work of how far it penetrated into people’s lives. Jeremy Brown in his contribution, refers to the example of class labels, a critical issue for almost ...

  • Jizi and His Art in Contemporary China: Unification by David Adam Brubaker
           and Chunchen Wang (review)
    • Abstract: The Dao uses technique as a means of expression, and technique itself connotes the spirit of the Dao. . . . [A]n artist . . . composes a realm . . . of images where “Heaven, earth, and humanity are one, and there is insight into the Dao, objects, and one’s self.”Jizi (b. 1942) has firmly established himself as one of China’s foremost representatives of traditional ink-wash painting as adapted and modernized for the contemporary world. His work has gained international renown for its ability to capture the trifold nature of reality expressed in the quote beginning this review, while simultaneously speaking to a Western audience with little to no familiarity with the traditional Chinese worldview or philosophy. As ... Read More

  • The Dictator’s Dilemma: The Chinese Communist Party’s Strategy for
           Survival by Bruce J. Dickson (review)
    • Abstract: The title of this new work by American political scientist Bruce J. Dickson is a little misleading. It sounds like the book will be largely speculative and join a long list of those that have already appeared contemplating various challenges the Communist Party faces along with assessments of how it might deal with these. In fact, at the heart of this study is material taken from a number of public opinion surveys conducted in China between 2010 and 2014 in different places and across different socioeconomic groups. In that sense the book is more about current public opinion in modern China than anything that is going to happen in the future.Chinese public opinion is something of a mystery. Pew and other surveys ... Read More

  • A History of the Chinese Language by Hongyuan Dong (review)
    • Abstract: A History of the Chinese Language by Hongyuan Dong is a significant contribution to the field of Chinese linguistics in general and Chinese historical linguistics in particular. This book gives a comprehensive and insightful introduction to the historical development of the Chinese language, describing the features of the Chinese language at various stages and providing wonderful analysis of core linguistic aspects such as phonology, syntax, semantics, vocabulary, Chinese characters, and dialects through time. Written for a general readership, it is highly accessible and reader-friendly, which is, however, not at the cost of the breadth or depth of the topic. The author carefully weaves linguistic facts, research ... Read More

  • Back from the Dead: Wrongful Convictions and Criminal Justice in China by
           Jiahong He (review)
    • Abstract: Jiahong He’s Back from the Dead: Wrongful Convictions and Criminal Justice in China addresses an important topic that should be of great interest to readers concerned with justice and human rights protection around the world. His observations on three cases of wrongful conviction are considerably informative and insightful.Part 1 introduces the case of Teng Xingshan—a murder case in Heilongjiang in 1987 in which Teng was sentenced to death and executed in 1989 and declared innocent in 2005—and analyzes five root causes for wrongful convictions in five chapters, respectively: (1) setting inappropriately tight deadlines for solving criminal cases, (2) “from confession to evidence” model of criminal investigation, (3) ...

  • Burying Autumn: Poetry, Friendship, and Loss by Ying Hu (review)
    • Abstract: Modern hagiographies have made Qiu Jin 秋瑾 (1875?-1907), a female revolutionary who was executed in public for plotting to overthrow the Qing empire (1644-1911), a household name in China for over a century. Her marble sculpture by the West Lake signifies her continued political utility today. One might wonder what is left to be uncovered about her extraordinary life. In Burying Autumn, however, Ying Hu breaks free of the hagiographical conventions that represent Qiu Jin’s life as “an inexorable drive toward its heroic end” (p. 6) and tells instead a lively story of her life and afterlife unfolding in the seismic changes of China’s modern history. Hu achieves this aim by excavating the “extraneous details” often ... Read More

  • Mark Twain in China by Selina Lai-Henderson (review)
    • Abstract: I don’t see how one can ever know a foreign language well enough to make reading poems in it worthwhile. Foreigners’ ideas of good English poems are dreadfully crude: Byron and Poe and so on. The Russians liking Burns. But deep down I think foreign languages irrelevant. If that glass thing over there is a window, then it isn’t a fenster or a fenêtre or whatever. Hautes Fenêtres, my God! A writer can have only one language, if language is going to mean anything to him.Those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads; but, for mine own part, it was Greek to me.In 1995, I was an unemployed college graduate with a degree in English literature and had the good luck to find a job at the eleventh hour ...

  • Women and National Trauma in Late Imperial Chinese Literature by Wai-yee
           Li (review)
    • Abstract: In the past two decades, there has been an explosion of interest in the intersection of Ming–Qing literature and women. From the many histories, anthologies, and case studies recently published, we now know much more about how women of late imperial China lived, read, wrote, and published; along the way, we are also ever more conscious that female figures, whether goddesses, courtesans, or chastity martyrs, often functioned as intermediaries or tropes, cementing male literati’s homosocial bonds and providing metaphors or subject matter for cultural and political debates. In the current volume under review, the term “women” functions both as real historical figures who lived and wrote, as well as literary figures ... Read More

  • One Who Knows Me: Friendship and Literary Culture in Mid-Tang China by
           Anna M. Shields (review)
    • Abstract: After publishing an erudite study on a Five Dynasties poetic anthology, Crafting a Collection: The Cultural Contexts and Poetic Practice of the Huajian Ji (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Asia Center, 2006), Anna Shields has gone back a century and a half to examine the intellectual discourse and social practice of friendship in the literary culture of the mid-Tang, focusing on the 780s to 820s. Through textual analysis of the dyadic relationships of Bai Juyi and Yuan Zhen, Han Yu and Meng Jiao, Liu Zhongyuan and Liu Yuxi, Shields tracks their individual and collective friendship within a community of about two dozen writers, including celebrity poets and essayists, and a chief councilor, Quan Deyu. She asserts ... Read More

  • Dams and Development in China: The Moral Economy of Water and Power by
           Bryan Tilt (review)
    • Abstract: China, which has been the world’s top energy user since 2011 and the top emitter of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) since 2008,1 relies heavily on fossil fuels to satisfy its energy needs. In 2013, electricity was generated from fossil fuels (77 percent), renewable sources (21 percent), and nuclear power (2 percent).2 In the interest of increasing energy efficiency and clean energy use, China’s Thirteenth Five-Year Plan (2016–2020) calls for carbon dioxide emissions per unit gross domestic product (GDP) to be lowered 18 percent and energy consumption per unit GDP, 15 percent, by 2020. The plan also sets a target that non–fossil fuels are to meet 15 percent of total energy needs.3The primary renewable energy ... Read More

  • The Politics of Law and Stability in China ed. by Susan Trevaskes et al.
           (review)
    • Abstract: Since Chinese leaders launched the reform movement in 1978, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has experienced a tremendous wave of change. The shifting nature of the ongoing reform, however, is plagued by contradiction and the clash of law and power. The contemporary Chinese legal system in which the judiciary is partly under the control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), has been labeled as the rule by law. In the PRC, the CCP uses the law to rule, but its discretionary power is not subject to the law. Susan Trevaskes, Elisa Nesossi, Flora Sapio, and Sara Biddulph explain in their edited book that because the CCP has always been the ruling party in the PRC, the judiciary has been the knife hilt of the Party. ...

  • Occupational Hazards: Sex, Business, and HIV in Post-Mao China by Elanah
           Uretsky (review)
    • Abstract: Over a period of eight years, medical anthropologist Elanah Uretsky gained the confidence of several high-level businessmen and government officials in the remote border town of Ruili, Yunnan Province, in order to explore HIV in China. She chose this location because Ruili was the site of China’s first HIV epidemic in 1989, of 146 IV drug users, all of the Jingpo minority nationality (p. 15). Hers is a provocative and valuable premise: that Chinese businessmen and government officials are at increased risk for contracting HIV because of their regular visits to sex workers, but that they are ignored by both the government and the public health industry. Uretsky underscores the complexity of the HIV problem in this ... Read More

  • Tang China in Multi-Polar Asia: A History of Diplomacy and War by Zhenping
           Wang (review)
    • Abstract: In this erudite study, Wang posits that from 618 to 906, Tang China existed in a multipolar East and Central Asia where fluidity characterized the regions and pragmatism shaped international relations among neighbors. Rejecting the traditional claim of centrality of Chinese power, he argues that the Turkic and Uighur empires in the northwest, the Korean states in the northeast, the Nanzhao kingdom in the southwest, and the Tibetan territories in the Western Regions and high grasslands challenged each other for military supremacy, but none among them, Tang China included, permanently held dominant influence over the region.1 Wang is meticulous in using primary sources—standard and institutional histories, classical ...
