  • China Before China: Johan Gunnar Andersson, Ding Wenjiang, and the

           Antesheng, Ding Wenjiang he Zhongguo shiqianshi de faxian by Magnus
           Fiskesjo and Chen Xingcan, and: Kina före Kina by Eva Myrdal
    • Abstract: <p>By Minna Franck</p> These two books relate to the Kina före Kina (China before China) exhibit at the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities (hereafter MFEA) in Stockholm, Sweden, which opened in September 2004. The Neolithic objects on display were collected by Johan Gunnar Andersson and his team in Central and Western China in the 1920s. Andersson’s discoveries depended not only on his personal interests, but also on the interest of others and on the political and economic realities in Europe and Asia at the time. The first book discussed here is the exhibit companion volume, which tells the history of these discoveries with a special emphasis on the context of the events described. The book is a joint project by Magnus ... <a href="">Read More</a>

    • Abstract: Part of a phrase was inadvertently deleted from note 10 on page 18 of the Spring 2012 51(1) issue of Asian Perspectives. The complete note should have read: The unknown chief is characterized as dua na turaga ni yavusa liu, literally “a tribal [yavusa] chief from olden times,” implicitly one whose bloodline is not certainly known ... <a href="">Read More</a>

    • Abstract: <p>By Loukas Barton</p> The Garden of Eden or Vavilov’s El Dorado' A review of recent thoughts on the origins of agriculture in mainland East AsiaNumerous texts, edited volumes, and monographs from around the world address the origins and consequences of agricultural life. Three volumes have emerged that re-evaluate the context, timing, and manner of agricultural evolution in mainland East Asia. The volumes coalesce under a narrow topical and theoretical range, but together they bring the complexities of current research on agricultural origins in China to a much wider audience. To some degree, all are concerned with the details of when and where agriculture originated, but vary in approach to the treatment of these details. All are also ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • China in the Early Bronze Age: Shang Civilization by Robert L. Thorp
    • Abstract: <p>By Roderick Campbell</p> In his English-language overview of Shang 商 civilization incorporating up-to-date archaeological, art-historical, and transmitted textual and epigraphic information, Thorp attempts a Herculean task. This is a much needed contribution to a field that has not had a synthetic treatment of the subject in English since K. C. Chang’s work in the early eighties (1980 (1983). As the jacket cover states, China in the Early Bronze Age aims to be both an introduction to Shang civilization for those who can’t read Chinese and “a handbook and research guide” for those who can. Given the pace of archaeological work in China, its rapidly multiplying and frequently scattered publications, and the difficulty of accessing, let ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Buddhist Landscapes in Central India: Sanchi Hill and Archaeologies of
           Religious and Social Change, c. Third Century B.C. to Fifth Century A.D.
           by Julia Shaw
    • Abstract: <p>By Catherine Becker</p> Editor's Note Several of the book reviews in this issue were written in 2007 and 2008, originally solicited for another journal that is no longer in publication. Asian Perspectives is publishing them here because the books are of interest to our readers, the reviews are still timely, and it will give the review authors the opportunity to have their work published in an alternative venue. For the scholar of South Asian art history, a visit to the Buddhist site at Sanchi in central India is akin to an encounter with a movie star. As the scholar circumambulates the main stūpa (a domed structure designed to hold the relics of the Buddha or other esteemed members of the Buddhist community) and wanders among the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Material Practice and the Metamorphosis of a Sign: Early Buddhist Stupas
           and the Origin of Mahayana Buddhism
    • Abstract: <p>By Lars Fogelin</p> While there is some debate, Buddhist textual sources suggest that the Buddha lived in the Gangetic Plain of South Asia from roughly the late sixth to early fifth centuries b.c. (but see Bechert 1995). Over the next six centuries, Buddhism became established throughout South Asia and beyond. Later, in the first through fifth centuries ad, Indian Buddhism went through a profound and transformative change in terms of its theology and ritual. This change led to the development of Mahayana Buddhism. While there is no single, coherent body of Mahayana scripture, one element is particularly central. Where early Buddhists viewed the Buddha as an absent exemplar for the attainment of enlightenment, later Mahayana Buddhists ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Design Theory and the Australian Tula Adze
    • Abstract: <p>By Trudy Doelman, Grant W. G. Cochrane</p> The tula (or tuhla) adze is a unique composite tool, invented and adapted to arid zone Australia and used through the late Holocene until recent times (Veth et al. 2011). A wealth of ethnographic descriptions and archaeological studies have already provided a strong corpus of information about the manufacture and use of this implement. Our goal here is to explain why Aboriginal toolmakers manufactured it according to relatively rigid design specifications over large expanses of space and time. We do this through a reexamination of the ethnographic and archaeological evidence and the application of design theory. We will argue that tula adzes were designed to be reliable implements during a period of environmental ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Buffer Zone Trade in Northeast Asia in the Second Century B.C.
    • Abstract: <p>By Sun-Mi Park</p> In any given society, trade is not only a method of acquiring goods that are not available locally, but also a way of interacting in political economic terms with other societies. Many researchers have shown that trade played a key role in the formation of complex societies, particularly states (Bandy 2005; Bintliff 1997; Ch’oe 1983; Cosmo 1994; Hodder 1982; Mikami 1966; Polanyi 1957; Renfrew 1975). Less attention has been paid to the dynamics of trade, particularly in the complex, multiethnic trade landscapes of East Asia in the late first millennium b.c. and early first millennium a.d. Little is known about the specific roles of different actors in conducting trade and their impact on local political economies. ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Big Ding 鼎 and China Power: Divine Authority and Legitimacy
    • Abstract: <p>By Elizabeth Childs-Johnson</p> By the eastern zhou and imperial eras of Chinese history, a legend had grown celebrating the ding 鼎 bronze vessel as the preeminent symbol of state authority and divine power. The mythic theme of “The First Emperor’s [Qin Shi Huangdi’s] Search for the Zhou Ding” or “The First Qin Emperor’s Failure to Discover the Ding” decorate the main gables of more than several Eastern Han funerary shrines, including Xiaotangshan and Wuliang in Shandong province (Wu 1989 : 138, 348). Pre-Han records in the Zuozhuan: 7th year of Duke Zhao (左传: 昭公七年) as well as the “Gengzhu” chapter in the Mozi (墨子: 耕柱篇) record the significance of this mythic representation. The Mozi passage states: In ancient times, King Qi of the Xia [Xia ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Landscapes of Inequality' A Critique of Monumental Hierarchy in the
           Mongolian Bronze Age
    • Abstract: <p>By Joshua Wright</p> The emergence of complex polities and adoption and spread of nomadic pastoralism on the Inner Asian Steppe are important narratives in the archaeology of Inner Asia (Anthony 2007; Chard 1974; Honeychurch and Amartuvshin 2006; Renfrew 1987; Sherratt 2003; Sinor 1969). Central to these narratives is the question of how stable societies reproduced in an unstable mobile social landscape. Analyzing the dominant archaeological material of the Eurasian Steppe, that is, the stone monuments that are found in myriad forms and scales throughout the region, is fundamental to addressing this question. Allard and Erdenebaatar (2005), analyzing the wide range of sizes of monuments of the Khanny valley landscape, argue ... <a href="">Read More</a>
