  • Editorial Preface
    • Abstract: The Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies has long been known for its robust book reviews. Rather than publish many short reviews, HJAS chooses a modest number of works and allows reviewers to engage with them at length. Long reviews have many benefits. Rather than a quick summary of the contents, reviewers have the opportunity to place the work into its intellectual context, discuss its strengths and weaknesses in some detail, and otherwise give readers not just a sense of an individual book but of a broader field as well. Publishing a small number of long reviews—no more than about a dozen per issue—involves trade-offs, of course. The most obvious is that we inevitably overlook many works that merit review. Choosing ... Read More

    • Abstract: details: Han Xiping shijing houji canshi 漢熹平石經後記殘石, circa 1912–1945. Rubbing from Han-era stele fragment; paper, ink, intaglio; 54 x 40 cm. No. TP0970, Harvard-Yenching Library, Harvard University, Cambridge MA [online version available through the Hollis Catalog (no. 9788564), at http://library.harvard.edu/]. Photo: Imaging Department © President and Fellows of Harvard College.Cai Yong 蔡邕 and his colleagues, eager to produce an authoritative version of the classical canon, persuaded Emperor Ling 靈 of Eastern Han to commission an edition literally engraved in stone. Production of the resulting Xiping stone Classics (Xiping shijing 熹平石經) began in 175 ce, during the Xiping era (hence the name). The stone Classics ... Read More

  • The Music Teacher: The Professionalization of Singing and the Development
           of Erotic Vocal Style During Late Ming China
    • Abstract: Over the past decades, scholars of early modern China and Japan have examined popular songs as part of mass culture.1 These studies have engaged with the economic motives and ideological implications behind changes to singing styles, courtesans’ singing practices as communication with their patrons, and the influence of popular songs written in local languages on literati publishing enterprises and on elite literary expression. Few, if any, scholars have focused on the social identity of music teachers, who worked in Suzhou’s brothels, or their pedagogies of singing as a commodity. This article explores these uncharted topics. Through the lens of “professionalization,” I examine singing teachers and their ... Read More

  • The Boy Who Lived: The Transfigurations of Chigo in the Medieval Japanese
           Short Story Ashibiki
    • Abstract: The fifteenth-century short story Ashibiki あしびき/葦曳 (The mountain) is an acolyte tale (chigo monogatari 稚児物語), a subgenre of the medieval short vernacular tales known as otogi zōshi 御伽草子.1 Chigo 稚児 were adolescent boys gorgeously adorned with makeup, tinted teeth, and colorful attire, and they functioned as catamites for their master priests. In order to become chigo, boys from elite aristocratic, military, or scholar-monk families underwent an esoteric ritual known as the chigo kanjō 稚児灌頂, which was finalized with penetration by the master priest.2 In Ashibiki, a chigo known simply as Wakagimi 若君 (the young lord) from Kōfukuji Tōnan’in 興福寺東南院 in Nara exchanges vows with Jijū 侍従, a young priest from Mt. Hiei. The ... Read More

  • Unearthed Documents and the Question of the Oral versus Written Nature of
           the Classic of Poetry
    • Abstract: In a widely distributed recent interview discussing the "unstable" nature of traditional Chinese literature, Stephen Owen opines that the Classic of Poetry (Shijing 詩經) is "undateable"—that prior to the Han dynasty (202 bce–220 ce) there is no evidence that there existed an integral written text, and indeed that people of the Warring States era (453–222 bce) would not have been able to write the text, at least not correctly. Owen concludes that the poems were likely transmitted orally, which would have affected the form in which they were ultimately written.I agree with many ideas of Martin Kern, as for instance that the Classic of Poetry is undateable. First, there is no evidence whatsoever that indicates that ... Read More

  • On a Han-era Postface (Xu 序) to the Documents
    • Abstract: Great is the power of steady misrepresentation,” grumbled Charles Darwin in 1872.1 Darwin was confident, however, that history “shows how, fortunately, this power does not endure long.” We sincerely hope that Darwin was right in his second remark. For we find a history of repeated misrepresentations over long centuries, much of it generated by well-meaning scholars, regarding the early history of the “Postface” to the Documents (Shu “Xu” 書序) in relation to the history of the compilation of the received fifty-eight-chapter Documents (now called the Shujing 書經).2 Such misrepresentations predicate the existence of a one-hundred-pian Documents with attached postface as far back in time as the sage Kongzi 孔子 ...

  • Examining Tonghak: The First Organized Indigenous Religion in Korea
    • Abstract: A little more than a century and a half ago, in 1860, an impoverished Korean Confucian scholar in the southeastern corner of the Korean peninsula had an encounter with God. People on the peninsula had been having encounters with gods for millennia. The earliest written account of a shaman interacting with various supernatural beings on Korean soil, by the disdainful scholar Yi Kyubo 李奎報. (1168-1241), dates back to the early thirteenth century. Archaeological evidence suggests that such shamanic interactions with gods and spirits had been taking place for more than a thousand years earlier than that. However, the 1860 incident was different. Ch’oe Cheu崔濟愚 (1824-1864) reported that his encounter was not with just any ... Read More

  • Messengers from the US-Chinese Past
    • Abstract: What matters in accounts of shared history? Whose stories should be included and count as history? The four books under review in this essay speak to these questions in distinct ways, but often refer to the same people, events, regions, and places. These studies differ in their analytical scope, subjects of inquiry, and sources, yet follow a similar research trajectory, focusing on informal contacts, marginalized experiences, and familial relations linking the United States and China. Through the analysis of people-to-people relations in particular political contexts, the books show how political discourses and agendas in the two countries marked and shaped human experiences relating to citizenship and rights ...

  • On the Margins of Empire: Buraku and Korean Identity in Prewar and Wartime
           Japan by Jeffrey Paul Bayliss (review)
    • Abstract: Jeffrey Bayliss’s On the Margins of Empire explains “the politics of minority identities in prewar and wartime Japan” (p. 388) within the wider context of modernization and imperialism by examining how mainstream stereotypes, mutual self-images, and international events and discourses shaped the construction of Buraku 部落 and Korean identities. The book offers an in-depth exploration of how Burakumin 部落民 and Koreans living in Japan during this period were variously marginalized and stereotyped, how class backgrounds within these groups influenced their responses to changing discriminatory social attitudes and to policies aimed at incorporating them into the Japanese empire, and how members of these groups came to ...

  • Public Memory in Early China by K. E. Brashier (review)
    • Abstract: Public Memory in Early China provides a rich, exquisitely detailed, and important account of early Chinese strategies for creating and maintaining a shared, public memory. Guided by such questions as, “What things should we remember?” and “How does a society measure and mark what is important to it?” Brashier discusses how certain oral and literary cultures in early China sought to mark, preserve, and commemorate individuals and ancestors, as well as other aspects of the past. With nuanced, mellifluous, and meticulously organized language, Brashier transforms the cold bones of mortuary culture—in particular, stele inscriptions, which form the springboard for his inquiry—into a wide-ranging intellectual feast. In ... Read More

  • Glorify the Empire: Japanese Avant-Garde Propaganda in Manchukuo by Annika
           A. Culver (review)
    • Abstract: Glorify the Empire reflects two important trends in the recent historiography of Japan’s overseas empire: the unprecedented and intensive scholarly attention devoted to Manchukuo (Manshūkoku 満州国), and the fearless application of the term fascism to describe the regime and culture of Japan during the 1930s and early 1940s. Since the publication of Louise Young’s magisterial, award-winning 1998 study, a host of established and younger scholars (particularly in history and literature) have embarked for the “frontier” of Japanese Manchuria.1 As befits a multicultural contact zone, this new scholarship examines Manchukuo from a multitude of ideological, political, gendered, and ethnic perspectives.2Emboldened perhaps by ...

  • Lu Xun’s Revolution: Writing in a Time of Violence by Gloria Davies,
           and: Literary Remains: Death, Trauma, and Lu Xun’s Refusal to Mourn by
           Eileen J. Cheng (review)
    • Abstract: Lu Xun 魯迅 (1881-1936) is the most prominent writer in modern Chinese literary history, and his work has for decades generated much scholarship, first in China and then elsewhere in the world. The first book-length study of Lu Xun was undertaken by Li Changzhi 李長之 as early as 1935.1 In 1944, Takeuchi Yoshimi 竹内好 wrote his famous book on Lu Xun, which still inspires readers today.2 In the English-speaking world, when T. A. Hsia ventured to discuss the “dark side” of Lu Xun in 1964, he brought about a paradigmatic shift, opposing the apotheosis of Lu Xun in leftist discourse.3 Leo Ou-fan Lee’s Voice from the Iron House, published in 1987, remains to date the most comprehensive review of Lu Xun as a writer and a ...

  • Drifting among Rivers and Lakes: Southern Song Dynasty Poetry and the
           Problem of Literary History by Michael A. Fuller (review)
    • Abstract: Drifting among Rivers and Lakes is no ordinary book; it is no ordinary literary history either. It accomplishes three things at once. First, it offers an overview of the major poets and developments in poetic practice during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Second, it anchors this overview in a broader consideration of how understandings of literary practice and the structures of aesthetic experience were changing between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries. Finally, this second and central aspect of Fuller’s work also leads to a new model of literary history. In its contextualization of the literary in larger political, social, and cultural processes, the model may appear reminiscent of literary theory ... Read More

  • The Politics of Dialogic Imagination: Power and Popular Culture in Early
           Modern Japan by Katsuya Hirano (review)
    • Abstract: There is always a complex and ambiguous relationship between state-imposed order and cultural practices that critique that order, between official hierarchies and popular behaviors that subvert such hierarchies. Nowhere is this relationship more evident than in Tokugawa-period Japan, known both for the rigidity of government authority and the simultaneous rise of a vibrant urban culture, with such creative, expressive forms as kabuki 歌舞伎 and puppet theater, spectacle shows (misemono 見世物), woodblock prints (ukiyo-e 浮世絵), and myriad inexpensive written and illustrated texts. In The Politics of Dialogic Imagination Katsuya Hirano explores this period, and the complex interactions of power and play that characterize ... Read More

  • From White to Yellow: The Japanese in European Racial Thought, 1300–1735
           by Rotem Kowner (review)
    • Abstract: I would like to begin this review with a comment on collegiality, since it also has a bearing on the book itself, which is a new study of the development of the concept of a “yellow race” in the European imagination. I first wrote to Rotem Kowner when working on my own study of this same subject nearly ten years ago and received much helpful and friendly advice, without any indication that he had already been toiling in this area for at least fifteen years and was eventually planning to publish a comprehensive treatment. It was only a number of years later, after finally meeting him in person, that he confessed to me his trepidation upon receiving my initial communications. How many of us have found ourselves in a ... Read More

  • The Making of a New Rural Order in South China, Volume I: Village, Land,
           and Lineage in Huizhou, 900-1600 by Joseph P. McDermott (review)
    • Abstract: The first of a planned two-volume project, Joseph McDermott’s The Making of a New Rural Order in South China examines the history of lineages and their socioeconomic activities in one of the most studied and storied locales in late imperial China, Huizhou 徽州 Prefecture in southern Anhui Province. Following other scholars (such as Fu Yiling, Ye Xian’en, Harriet Zurndorfer, and Anne Osborne), McDermott mines the extraordinary trove of documents left by lineages, and collected, stored, and protected by a long line of lineage ancestral halls, book dealers, and others from the Ming through the People’s Republic.1 He recounts the fascinating story behind these sources in an appendix to the introduction.Huizhou Prefecture ...

  • Living Karma: The Religious Practices of Ouyi Zhixu by Beverley Foulks
           McGuire (review)
    • Abstract: Delve into the scholarship on late Ming-dynasty Buddhism, and you soon encounter the name of Ouyi Zhixu 蕅益智旭 (1599-1655), who figures as one of the four great monks of the period, along with Hanshan Deqing 憨山德清 (1546-1623), Yunqi Zhuhong 雲棲祩宏 (1535-1615), and Zibo Zhenke 紫柏真可 (1543-1603). Even though he appeared a generation after the other three, Ouyi Zhixu still wielded influence through his personal charisma, his wide-ranging publications, and his network of correspondents. The field of late imperial Chinese Buddhism has needed a monograph on him for quite some time.To the scholar who undertakes this study, however, the sheer heft of his output presents a daunting challenge. His Collected Works takes up an ... Read More

  • Buddhism, Unitarianism, and the Meiji Competition for Universality by
           Michel Mohr (review)
    • Abstract: In this unconventional study, Michel Mohr weds a detailed history of the 1887-1922 Unitarian mission to Japan and an abstract discussion of universality. Mohr draws extensively on missionary correspondence housed at the Andover-Harvard Theological Library to examine “the transplant of ideas brought by the Unitarians and the extent to which this ‘graft’ succeeded or failed to take root on Japanese soil” (p. xiii). At the core of the ideas Unitarians attempted to graft onto Japan, according to this study, stands a particular vision of religious universality, a universality that sought dialogue rather than conversion. Mohr argues that this vision, once planted, “set into motion a chain reaction ranging from interest ... Read More

  • A Family of No Prominence: The Descendants of Pak Tŏkhwa and the Birth of
           Modern Korea by Eugene Y. Park (review)
    • Abstract: In the context of the twenty-first century when most Koreans do not remember their close ancestors, A Family of No Prominence is unique in tracing one family’s history over some four hundred years, from the late sixteenth century to the present, along with the transformations that family members underwent in terms of their identities. It is all the more remarkable that the family under microscopic investigation belonged to the category of chungin 中人 during the late Chosŏn dynasty, for most works on Chosŏn social history focus on yangban 兩班, the ruling elite of that era.1 It is rare even for a work on the yangban status group to cover such a long period of time in revealing the ebb and flow of a family. Moreover ... Read More

  • Lords of the Sea: Pirates, Violence, and Commerce in Late Medieval Japan
           by Peter D. Shapinsky (review)
    • Abstract: In this deeply researched study, Peter Shapinsky investigates the pirate bands that inhabited the islands of Japan’s Inland Sea (Seto naikai 瀬戸内海) and their symbiotic relationship with land-based rulers before the absorption of these bands into the Tokugawa ecumene during the seventeenth century. Amid the political disunity and endemic conflict of the Muromachi era during the fourteenth through sixteenth centuries, the leaders of these bands established themselves as “sea lords,” combining shipping, fishing, and salt manufacture with mercenary violence. The sea lords negotiated patron-client relationships with land-based rulers whose effective authority stopped—to use one of Shapinsky’s favorite metaphors—“at the ... Read More

  • Breaking with the Past: The Maritime Customs Service and the Global
           Origins of Modernity in China by Hans van de Ven (review)
    • Abstract: Breaking with the Past represents an important contribution to the expanding scholarship that places Chinese history within a global context. In the process, this book helps us understand anew the role played by foreign imperialism in the crucial economic and political transformation that characterized China during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries—the period when the Chinese Maritime Customs Service (CS) operated. Van de Ven rejects interpretations of the CS as a tool of British imperialism in China that dictated policies to a helpless Chinese government. He instead portrays the CS as a cosmopolitan organization at the center of a wide network of international financial interests that, from this ... Read More
