  • Law in the Mongol and Post-Mongol World: The Case of Yuan China
    • Abstract: The historical impact of Mongols and their empires of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries has long been dismissed. Conventional perceptions portray the Mongols as destroyers and plunderers, and until recently, scholars were usually content to pass off the Mongol conquest of Eurasia as a phenomenal aberration in history: the Islamic world was quickly re-established, Russia beat back the Golden Horde, the Ming dynasty quickly resumed China’s late imperial trends, and despite the physical and cultural destruction, Korea threw off Mongol domination and adopted Confucianism. Research over the past few decades, however, has given a more balanced picture and made strong claims for the Mongol conquests and empire as a ... Read More

  • Imaginary Identities and Han Nationalism: A Consideration
    • Abstract: This is a good book. It is bracing, informative, and lucidly written. It is also by turns (perhaps unintentionally) entertaining and tragic. In its narrative focus, Kevin Carrico takes up the vexing question of why Chinese nationalism—here understood as a form of exclusionary ethno-racial identity—commands the kind of intense loyalties and devotions it does in China today, and he explores this question anthropologically through the unlikely medium of what is called the Han Clothing Movement (hanfu yundong). This movement emerged in the early 2000s amid the chaos of consumer culture, geopolitical maneuvering, and frenetic urbanized life to advocate for a return to “Chinese tradition,” articulated by its acolytes as ...

  • A Brief Response to Ma Xu
    • Abstract: China Review International volume 22, number 2 (2015) features Ma Xu’s suggestion of a new title for my book, Heroines of the Qing: Exemplary Women Tell Their Stories (Seattle and London: University of Washington Press, 2016). While I appreciate Ma Xu’s suggestion, I am not prepared to find new titles—such as “Another Poet-Autobiographer,” following Professor Stephen Owen’s work on Tao Qian as the first Chinese poet-autobiographer; or “Yet Another Expression of Self,” following Professor Robert E. Hegel’s work on expressions of self in Chinese literature—for any works that discuss the shaping of the self in Chinese literature.1 Likewise I have no plans of adopting this new title “Herself an Autobiographer” as an ...

  • Sea Rovers, Silver, and Samurai: Maritime East Asia in Global History,
           1550–1700 ed. by Tonio Andrade, Xing Hang (review)
    • Abstract: This edited volume presents the multifarious roles of East Asian seafarers in the region’s trade and diplomacy between 1550 and 1700. It was the period during which the Jurchens renamed and regrouped themselves into the formidable Manchu cavalry power. The Manchus took over the Ming capital of Beijing in 1644 and incorporated Taiwan in 1683. It was also the time that Japan’s Momoyama period ended with the unification under Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1536–1598), whose power was succeeded by Tokugawa Ieyasu’s (1543–1616) Tokugawa bakufu, established in 1603. In general, the organization of the book can be understood in reference to the achievements and predicaments of the four generations of the Zheng family from Quanzhou ... Read More

  • Fiery Cinema: The Emergence of an Affective Medium in China,
           1915–1945 by Weihong Bao (review)
    • Abstract: At the core of Weihong Bao’s Fiery Cinema is the question of “what constitutes the medium of cinema'” (p. 2). By way of the recurrent trope of fire, Bao enframes, deframes, and reframes early Chinese cinema amid China’s experiences of war between 1915 and 1945 as an affective medium, a fiery cinema, and a technology that was already conceiving its own future reincarnations. Bao argues that the study of the emergence of China’s affective medium allows us to rethink the intersections between social and media politics and the “politics of medium specificity and intermediality” (p. 5). Affective medium is a concept coined by Bao to reconceptualize Chinese cinema not merely as a singular or finite medium and object, or ... Read More

  • The Borderlands of Asia: Culture, Place, Poetry ed. by Mark Bender
           (review)
    • Abstract: Mark Bender’s edited collection of translated poetry brings us the words and perspectives of poets on the peripheries of Asian nation-states, at once deeply rooted in local environments and idioms, and disproportionately affected by political and environmental change. With poems from established and upcoming authors and a thematic focus on poetic expressions of place and “place-competence,” the collection includes voices from northeast India, Myanmar, Mongolia, and some of the borderland regions of China: the southwestern provinces, Qinghai, Gansu, and Inner Mongolia. Bender’s detailed Introduction provides historical background on the political situation and the situation of poetry in each of the regions from ... Read More

  • Divided Lenses: Screen Memories of War in East Asia ed. by Michael Berry,
           Chiho Sawada (review)
    • Abstract: Bringing together chapters by scholars from different disciplines, Divided Lenses: Screen Memories of War in East Asia, edited by Michael Bert and Chiho Sawada, examines the different visual representations of wars and atrocities that have ravaged Asia from the 1930s through the 1950s. These wars include the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Pacific War, the Chinese Civil War, and the Korean War, among others. The eleven chapters not only explore the representations of war on screens, but also “how the conflicts . . . have been imagined, framed, and revisited using the lens of screen culture” (p. 2). As such, this volume traces the portrayals of wars in East Asia in cinema and video games, and on television and the ... Read More

  • Out of China: How the Chinese Ended the Era of Western Domination by
           Robert Bickers (review)
    • Abstract: The Opium War famously began China’s “Century of Humiliation” in which foreigners invaded, defeated, and humiliated the Chinese. Blatant racism in the treaty ports, exemption from Chinese laws and police authority, and reliance on foreign gunboats to intimidate locals were just some of the many indignities visited on China. This gaping wound is not at all forgotten in today’s China; the memory of these events is cultivated and perhaps distorted by China’s leaders. It forms the basis for much of the Chinese government claims of legitimacy.Robert Bickers has already detailed the origins of this system in his 2011 book, The Scramble for China: Foreign Devils in the Qing Empire, 1832–1914. The current volume picks up ... Read More

  • Jottings under Lamplight: Lu Xun ed. by Eileen J. Cheng, Kirk A. Denton
           (review)
    • Abstract: Lu Xun’s cultural critique has remained relevant throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first century in part because his person has been posthumously canonized as the “the father of modern Chinese literature” (p. 2) but also because such caustic critique of Chinese culture in many manifestations cannot or dare not be replicated. Lu Xun thus eludes the censorship of which any lesser cultural figure might run afoul. Jottings under Lamplight: Lu Xun is a book of translations of important Lu Xun essays and prefaces which elucidate both this cultural critique and moreover humanize Lu Xun through self-reflection on his own foibles and misgivings related through autobiographical essays and prefaces.Jottings ...

  • Transgressive Typologies: Constructions of Gender and Power in Early Tang
           China by Rebecca Doran (review)
    • Abstract: How did gender play a role in history writing and the shaping of collective memory following the reign of Wu Zhao (624–705; reigned 690–705 as the Emperor of Zhou) and her female successors' How did elite men of Tang and Song China process the fact that All-Under-Heaven had been ruled by a female emperor not long before' Transgressive Typologies analyzes historical narratives about these female political leaders and provides new perspectives for contemplating these questions. Doran focuses on the formation of narrative typologies—how, as stated on the book’s back cover, these women’s power is “rhetorically framed, gendered, and ultimately deemed transgressive”—in anecdotal and historical writings from the Tang to ...

  • Two Centuries of Manchu Women Poets: An Anthology tran. by Wilt L. Idema
           (review)
    • Abstract: Despite burgeoning scholarly interest in Manchu studies in recent years, the women of the Eight Banners remain a subject that has seen only limited advancement in research. Although they have been subject to several studies on family life and social customs within Eight Banner communities, these works tend to reflect the points of view of the Qing state and the men that presided over it, while the women’s own voices remain relatively muted. By translating the literary output of Manchu women throughout the Qing dynasty and presenting in-depth investigations of their lives, Wilt L. Idema’s Two Centuries of Manchu Women Poets hence grants us a unique insight into their inner thoughts and sentiments.Even though he ... Read More

  • Confucianism, a Habit of the Heart: Bellah, Civil Religion, and East Asia
           ed. by Philip J. Ivanhoe, Sungmoon Kim (review)
    • Abstract: The collected volume Confucianism, A Habit of the Heart, edited by Philip J. Ivanhoe and Sungmoon Kim, is the product of a conference in honor of Robert Bellah that took place at the City University of Hong Kong in 2011. Bellah, who received his training in a joint sociology and Far East languages program, began his career by studying Japanese religion but rose to prominence with the publication of his 1967 essay, “Civil Religion in America,” in which he argues that American culture is imbued with a religious dimension that can be differentiated from its various organized religious traditions. This entity, which Bellah calls “civil religion,” lacks the formal institutions of traditional religion, but it pervades ... Read More

  • Imperial Illusions: Crossing Pictorial Boundaries in the Qing Palaces by
           Kristina Kleutghen (review)
    • Abstract: For years, the general consensus in Chinese art history was that the Qing dynasty (1644–1911) represented a period of decline and decadence, especially regarding its paintings. The long-held view only shifted in the last few decades, and a highlight of that ongoing trend was marked a few years ago by a survey volume devoted solely to paintings of the last imperial dynasty, the only one of its kind in English.1In the past two decades, scholars have expanded their area of interest to other visual and material cultures produced during the Qing, including those from the imperial court.2 These works, many fully situated the subjects within a well-developed artistic and economic system that brought together various ...

  • Folk Art and Modern Culture in Republican China by Felicity Lufkin
           (review)
    • Abstract: What is “folk”' At face value, the term conveys tradition and authenticity but when examined, its modern origins seem as complex in China as they are in the West. In the book’s introduction, Felicity Lufkin explores the concept’s post-Industrial Revolution roots and moreover, its convolution as a classification of art. Rather than becoming clearer as the book progresses, “folk art” remains frustratingly elusive as a concept. But that is the point. As Hobsbawm and Ranger suggest, “tradition” is often a fictitious vessel for modern nationalism. The Chinese even had a metaphor for this process: “pouring new wine into old bottles.” Lufkin’s book does not examine folk art made by rural artisans for local consumption but ... Read More

  • Placing Empire: Travel and the Social Imagination in Imperial Japan by
           Kate McDonald (review)
    • Abstract: McDonald’s study examines the discourse of tourism in the Japanese empire from the late nineteenth to the mid twentieth century in order to understand the spatial politics of Japanese imperialism in the context of world history. In particular, the author focuses on the imperial tourism from the Japanese mainland to Korea, Manchuria, and Taiwan. This book is divided into two parts, the first of which comprises two chapters, while the second consists of three chapters. There are also a separate introduction and a conclusion.

  • Reporting for China: How Chinese Correspondents Work with the World by Pal
           Nyiri (review)
    • Abstract: Pal Nyiri’s Reporting for China is the first analysis of the workings of China’s foreign correspondents across global contexts, from Africa to Europe to the United States. Challenging the top down depictions of China’s international media operations as a dull mouthpiece of the party, Nyiri delves into the agency of Chinese foreign correspondents. The book uncovers both the increasingly cosmopolitan lifestyles and dispositions of Chinese journalists and their persisting adherence to the national interests in their writing, with international reporting generally framed around China’s priorities or the “China peg.”Journalists navigate the blurry lines between professionalism and national priorities. This translates ... Read More

  • Sold People: Traffickers and Family Life in North China by Johanna S.
           Ransmeier (review)
    • Abstract: It is almost a truism among scholars of Chinese studies that precommunist China used to have “one of the most largest and most comprehensive markets for the exchange of human beings in the world.”1 Most scholars tend to treat the sale of people as a mere manifestation of a broader social dysfunction such as famine or prostitution. Few, as Johanna S. Ransmeier has told us, however, have actually analyzed trafficking as a phenomenon in its own right, and attempted to show the nature of such a phenomenon with detailed examples and with a lucid explanatory framework. That is precisely what the author accomplishes in this book. At the highest level of abstraction, the book asks and answers how human trafficking was ... Read More

  • Chinatown Opera Theater in North America by Nancy Yunhwa Rao (review)
    • Abstract: Grounded in extensive research involving immigration records, interviews, and collections of playbills, this new volume in the University of Illinois Press’s “Music in American Life” series explores the history of Chinese theaters in San Francisco, Vancouver, New York, Havana, and elsewhere during the 1920s. More broadly, the author, Nancy Yunhwa Rao, looks at how performers, theater owners, patrons, and audiences formed a transnational network where actors, advertisements, opera records, and Chinese products promoted through the theaters, such as herbal medicines, flowed between America’s East and West Coasts, as well as to and from Canada, the Territory of Honolulu, Mexicali, and Cuba. With twelve body chapters ... Read More

  • Gender, Dating and Violence in Urban China by Xiying Wang (review)
    • Abstract: Dr. Xiying Wang, a Professor at Beijing Normal University, received her Ph.D. from the University of Hong Kong with a dissertation on dating violence among young people in Beijing. Her book on Gender, Dating and Violence in Urban China is at its core based on the qualitative research she pursued in the capital of the PRC for her doctoral work. Yet, the book goes well beyond that provocative topic itself. Being informed by a Chinese feminist perspective and well versed in Western feminist literature, she questions and undermines with her findings a set of assumptions people usually connect with gender relations in China. These assumptions about the persistence of unequal gender relations, which go back to Confucian ... Read More

  • The Sinews of State Power: The Rise and Demise of the Cohesive Local State
           in Rural China by Juan Wang (review)
    • Abstract: Juan Wang’s book, The Sinews of State Power: The Rise and Demise of the Cohesive Local State in Rural China, is an excellent attempt at understanding contemporary rural China through the triadic relationship of the county, township, and village government. Traditionally, the state power never penetrated down to the county level in China. The Republic of China under Jiang Jieshi tried to establish some presence of state authority in the rural areas at the county level through the Bao-Jia system but never really succeeded. Wang demonstrated that the Chinese Communist Party during Mao era did successfully establish solid governance in the rural areas through the triadic relationship of county, township, and village ...

  • Chinese and Americans: A Shared History by Xu Guoqi (review)
    • Abstract: This book by Xu Guoqi examines various encounters between Chinese and Americans since the mid-nineteenth century, which Xu argues are indicative of their “surprising shared history” (p. 1) that demonstrates that the history of Sino-American relations comprises not only the “usual negative or confrontational episodes” but “the positive aspects” (p. 16) and “a constructive sharing” (p. 259) of “cooperation and shared excitement or frustration” (p. 17). The “largely forgotten” (p. 14) and “ignored” (p. 16) cases of the individuals, “carefully selected” (p. 17) from “the viewpoints of both sides” (p. 16), are, Xu believes, conducive to overcoming “a negative or skeptical perspective” and understanding a complete ...

  • Rural Origins, City Lives: Class and Place in Contemporary China by
           Roberta Zavoretti (review)
    • Abstract: For some time now, China’s rapidly growing cities have been viewed by many journalists, scholars, and officials alike as social condensers capable of transforming rural residents into civilized citizens. This official, hegemonic narrative is complemented by one that views cities as incubators of a new middle class citizen-subjectivity that is at once more self-disciplined, individualistic, market- and consumption-oriented, as well as patriotic and invested in the stability provided by a strong party-state. This is a powerful narrative that has affected the way many of us think about urbanization in China today. Its power could be measured, one might argue, by the strength of the critique that it has precipitated: ... Read More
