  • China's Palace Women through the Dynasties
    • Abstract: One of the world's leading experts in Ming-Qing fiction and gender relations, Keith McMahon is ideally qualified to undertake the study of women in the emperor's entourage over the two millennia of China's imperial history. In this masterful two-volume survey, Women Shall Not Rule and Celestial Women, he draws on official histories for the basic facts of who, when, and where, and he also casts a wide net, exploiting informal histories, gossipy memoirs, and the countless fictional narratives that have always done more than official histories to shape public perceptions of women and gender relations in the emperors' palaces.McMahon is careful to note when some fictional accounts are blatantly implausible, when ...

  • Chinese Metaphysics: A New Name for Some Old Ways of Thinking
    • Abstract: "They [a set of literary articles written for the Eatanswill Gazette] appeared in the form of a copious review of a work on Chinese metaphysics, Sir," said Pott."Oh," observed Mr. Pickwick; "from your pen, I hope?""From the pen of my critic, Sir," rejoined Pott, with dignity."An abstruse subject, I should conceive," said Mr. Pickwick."Very, Sir," responded Pott, looking intensely sage. "He crammed for it, to use a technical but expressive term; he read up for the subject at my desire, in the 'Encyclopedia Britannica.'""Indeed!" said Mr. Pickwick; "I was not aware that that valuable work contained any information respecting Chinese metaphysics.""He read, Sir," rejoined Pott, laying his hand on Mr. Pickwick's knee ...

  • Daughter of Good Fortune: A Twentieth-Century Chinese Peasant Memoir by
           Shehong Chen (review)
    • Abstract: Daughter of Good Fortune is an autobiography dictated by Chen Huiqin (referred to as "Mother"), a rural woman who has lived in the Jiading area all her life, recorded and edited by Shehong Chen (referred to as her birth name Shezhen), Mother's firstborn, who is now a professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Born in 1931, Mother witnessed a majority of the substantial social changes in rural China since the late 1930s, and relates the events in a microcosmic pattern, that is, the detailed daily life of a rural dweller in southeastern China.Ostensibly, the book is a collection of the life stories of Mother; however, the underlying and advanced intention of the book, as Shehong Chen declares in ...

  • Contestation and Adaptation: The Politics of National Identity in China by
           Enze Han (review)
    • Abstract: China, most often mentioned as a rising economic and political power, has issues of ethnic division. While not overemphasizing these concerns, it is important for those inside and outside of China to consider what causes ethnic unrest or creates ethnic ease. Enze Han, senior lecturer in the Department of Politics and International studies, SOAS, University of London, not only provides a detailed portrayal of five ethnic groups within China but also outlines a thesis where he assesses whether an ethnic group will seek political contestation or adaptation. The book, based on his dissertation, considers the impact of two international factors in ethnic political mobilization.The author's thesis is "that international ... Read More

  • The Han: China's Diverse Majority by Agnieszka Joniak-Lüthi (review)
    • Abstract: In contemporary China, the Han as a social category has assumed a life of its own. Villagers whom I encountered in multiethnic regions coined the phrase duoshu minzu to juxtapose the Han majority vis-à-vis the official term shaoshu minzu (minority nationalities). On occasion, the Han were directly referred to as an equivalent to the state (guojia) when government officials visited these minority villages. As Han-ness has been inscribed with so many layers of meaning, how much do we really know about the Han as a majority? How is the Han category an ethnic one, if at all? How do perceptions of the Han relate to the Chinese nationstate? And what do Han individuals think about themselves?Fully attending to the ... Read More

  • Roaming into the Beyond: Representations of Xian Immortality in Early
           Medieval Chinese Verse by Zornica Kirkova (review)
    • Abstract: Reliable Chinese historical records, written or otherwise, go back thousands of years, and we easily recognize that so many of China's cultural traditions exhibit a historical constancy, flavored certainly by change and development, that is unmatched by other civilizations. Despite the fact that Daoism, China's sole great indigenous religion, is prominent among them, it remains little understood in the West. When Herrlee Creel some eighty years ago posed the question "What is Daoism?" the proffered answers (including his own) have at best enjoyed only piecemeal and contentious acceptance.

  • The Futility of Law and Development: China and the Dangers of Exporting
           American Law by Jedidiah J. Kroncke (review)
    • Abstract: The Futility of Law and Development: China and the Dangers of Exporting American Law presents, as its title suggests, a somber view of America's involvement in the course of legal history in China. Jedidiah J. Kroncke succinctly states, "the history of exporting American law is one of loss" (p. 8). Yet all is not lost. His cautionary tale contains an aspiration that we, as Americans, might grow from a process of intense self-reflection to embrace "a studied cosmopolitanism" (p. 9). Rather than the dominant one-way-street approach of exporting law, an enhanced receptivity to foreign legal ideas should accompany America's long-held interest in engaging with legal systems abroad.Kroncke's work is both sweeping and ...

  • Islamic Thought in China: Sino-Muslim Intellectual Evolution from the 17th
           to the 21st Century ed. by Jonathan Lipman (review)
    • Abstract: For a long time, Islam in China was a neglected topic among academics in contrast to the sustained interest it maintained among enthusiastic Christian missionaries. The appearance of Dru Gladney's foundational ethnography of the Hui in the early 1990s, followed later by the first comprehensive history of the same group by Jonathan Lipman, a student of Joseph Fletcher, initiated an age when serious scholarly engagement with the topic began to gain momentum. From sociology and anthropology to historiography and ethnomusicology, not to mention political science, academics in the past three decades have been experimenting with different approaches to do justice to the richness of the topic. One essential manifestation ... Read More

  • In the Shadows of the Dao: Laozi, the Sage, and the Daodejing by Thomas
           Michael (review)
    • Abstract: Imagine that the New Testament was being interpreted as a political text without any reference to its impact on past or present Christian beliefs or practices. In a sense most Western scholarship concerning the Daodejing has interpreted that text without any reference to its impact on past or present Daoist practices or beliefs. Thomas Michael sets the record straight with this work. He acknowledges that his academic lineage begins with Henri Maspero, who influenced Kristofer Schipper, Roger Ames, Livia Kohn, and Harold Roth with the idea that Daoist beliefs and practices existed well before the beginning of the Common Era (c.e.). Scholars such as Nathan Sivin and Michel Strickmann propose that the label "Daoism" ... Read More

  • Real Life in China at the Height of Empire: Revealed by the Ghosts of Ji
           Xiaolan transed. by David E. Pollard (review)
    • Abstract: David E. Pollard's new translation of a selection of Ji Yun's Jottings from the Thatch Hut of Subtle Views (Yuewei caotang biji 閱微草堂筆記) should be first commended for its title. Real Life in China is a splendid name, aptly warning the reader that he is not to be merely taken into encounters with seducing fox spirits and exotic ghosts or other uncanny beings. Ghosts and vixens he will meet, of course, and there are superb pieces of Chinese literary storytelling in these pages. However, a lot of discussion will also be found in parts of the book that is by no means less entertaining and interesting.The importance of the nonnarrative, somewhat didactic elements in the Yuewei caotang biji has been traditionally linked ...

  • The Sino-Russian Challenge to the World Order: National Identities,
           Bilateral Relations, and East versus West in the 2010s by Gilbert Rozman
           (review)
    • Abstract: Growing cooperation between the People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation in recent years has been closely followed by several media and academic communities around the world. In light of the difficulties in the South China Sea and southeastern Ukraine, both countries have more than once been labeled "revisionist states," and their increased cooperation has been viewed as a step toward a strategic and formal partnership, which could potentially endanger international stability. Yet, others argue that the Sino-Russian cooperation is purely for economic benefit, with Russia being overly dependent on China's financial superiority and leadership with little to offer in return. Beijing's efforts to boost ... Read More

  • The Qing Dynasty and Traditional Chinese Culture by Richard J. Smith
           (review)
    • Abstract: With the growing archives of Manchu-written primary texts as well as the application of varied analytical methods to the texts, early modern Chinese history (specifically Qing China) has drawn much attention from the world of English-language scholarship. The Qing dynasty governed almost twice as much land as the previous dynasty (the Han-Chinese dynasty), and thus an issue that has piqued scholars' interest is how the Qing dynasty could effectively and successfully govern this vast stretch of land (including China proper and newly annexed territories such as Xinjiang) for over 250 years (from roughly 1644 to 1911). In exploring this issue, scholars have reexamined the diverse characteristics of the Qing dynasty ... Read More

  • Negotiating China's Destiny in World War II eds. by Hans van de Ven
           (review)
    • Abstract: By bringing in scholars from Asia, Europe, and North America, three premier experts on Chinese history—Hans van de Ven, Diana Lary, and Stephen R. MacKinnon—have masterfully put together this edited volume on China's experiences in World War II. The result of their efforts is a collection of well-researched essays answering many important questions left out of previous studies. The book is divided into three parts, each of which comes with its own theme.The first part, titled "Old Empires and the Rise of China," focuses on China's transition from a country dominated by Western imperialism to one playing a significant role in the war against the Japanese aggression in Asia. It begins with Marianne Bastid-Bruguiere's ... Read More

  • Views from Within, Views from Beyond: Approaches to the Shiji as an Early
           Work of Historiography eds. by Hans van Ess (review)
    • Abstract: This is a collection of papers concerning the Shiji "Records of the Scribe" or "Historical Records" and its two authors, the Han court scribes or astronomers Sima Tan (d. 110 b.c.e.) and his son Sima Qian (ca. 145–ca. 86 b.c.e.). The papers were presented at a Shiji meeting with Western and Taiwanese scholars in 2001. They are case studies, mostly focusing on one or more sources. Together they provide a lively expression of the detailed discussions held in the field. The monograph is divided into two parts: "Views from Within," focusing on a reading of the text, and "Views from Without," looking at its later reception. With such a complex and long-studied text as the Shiji, this distinction is neither clear nor ... Read More

  • The Orphan of Zhao and Other Yuan Plays: The Earliest Known Versions
           trans. by Stephen H. West and Wilt L. Idema (review)
    • Abstract: The Orphan of Zhao and Other Yuan Plays is the latest collaborative project of Stephen West and Wilt Idema, renowned scholars and translators of traditional Chinese literature. It arrived very soon after the publication of their three other volumes, Monks, Bandits, Lovers: Eleven Early Chinese Plays (Indianapolis: Hackett, 2010); Battle, Betrayal, Brotherhood: Plays of Three Kingdoms (Indianapolis: Hackett, 2012); and Generals of Yang Family: Four Early Plays (Singapore: World Scientific, 2013). This volume consists of an erudite essay on the structure, production, and performance of early Yuan drama, followed by introductions and annotated translations of seven early Yuan role-text scripts printed in 1250–1400 ...

  • Fiction's Family: Zhan Xi, Zhan Kai, and the Business of Women in
           Late-Qing China by Ellen Widmer (review)
    • Abstract: It is a common approach to consider "fiction" in the form of a single object, scrutinizing one novel at a time, or "family" in a similar way, penetrating into every member, every generation of a certain biological clan. However, cognizant that historical narrative played a significant and predominant role in Chinese literary tradition, it makes sense to put "fiction" and "family" together, using "fiction" to contextualize "family," and "family" to contextualize "fiction." What facts, questions, and implications will then emerge in the contextualization and recontextualization of "fiction's family"? This innovative approach is what Ellen Widmer takes in her Fiction's Family: Zhan Xi, Zhan Kai, and the Business of ... Read More

  • Reinventing Chinese Tradition: The Cultural Politics of Late Socialism by
           Ka-ming Wu (review)
    • Abstract: Ka-ming Wu's book consists of three rather clearly demarcated parts, each of which offers an ethnographic account of a traditional cultural practice in contemporary rural Yan'an. Everyone familiar with China knows Yan'an, in Shaanxi Province, as the site from which the Chinese Communist Party expanded its power across the country. It remains today a rather poor region in which some folk practices have survived longer than in places with more rapid change. Of these, Wu discusses paper cutting, traditional storytelling, and the spirit medium cult of a female deity called Wangmu Niangniang.By now, there are a number of studies by geographers and anthropologists on the revival, or rather reinvention, of local ...

  • Bianju: Qiqianrendahui shimo: Yijiuliu'er nian yiyue shiyiri–eryue qiri
           by Zhang Suhua (review)
    • Abstract: Scholars habitually use certain significant meetings held by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to demarcate historical periods of modern China as signposts of crucial political changes. The August Seventh Meeting in Wuhan in 1927 (launching the Autumn Harvest Uprising), the Seventh National Congress in Yan'an in 1945 (establishing Mao Zedong's unchallengeable position within the CCP), the Lushan Conference in 1959 (purging Peng Dehuai), and the Third Plenary Meeting of the Eleventh National Congress in Beijing in 1978 (initiating Deng Xiaoping's reforms) are all notable examples. Indeed, these meetings are truly landmarks of pivotal historical change and thus they tend to be frequently mentioned and widely ... Read More

  • Daoist Philosophy and Literati Writings in Late Imperial China: A Case
           Study of The Story of the Stone by Zuyan Zhou (review)
    • Abstract: The syncretist milieu of late imperial Chinese culture, manifested in a richly diversified literati voice, makes the project taken on in this impressively footnoted work a brave feat. In tracing the Daoist influence culminating in late-Ming literary works, the author creates a frame of reference for the study of The Story of the Stone by Cao Xueqin. This book is impressive in both scope and clarity, and while it purports to take Stone as the primary emphasis, it effectively brings the history surrounding both the arguably most famous novel in Chinese history and its illusive author to vivid life. In other words, vast knowledge of Stone and the ocean of literature dedicated to it is not necessary in order to ... Read More
