  • War or Peace in the Indo-Pacific
    • Abstract: If the 2016 U.S. presidential election had gone the other way, the author of The Pivot, former State Department Asian specialist Kurt Campbell, might have been chosen to serve President Hillary Clinton in carrying through the American pivot (re-balancing) to Asia initiated by Secretary of State Clinton during the Obama presidency. Campbell's analysis of America-Asia relations is replete with relevant history and thoughtful political commentary, which has much to do with whether or not The Pivot is a good policy. But Clinton did not win. The notion of an American Pivot to Asia is now dead and buried.In contrast to Clinton and Campbell, high-level supporters of the winner, Donald Trump, were very critical of the ... Read More

  • Critical Approaches to the Narrative of Sinicization
    • Abstract: This book arrives on the cusp of a new wave of publications and surging scholarly interest in premodern developments in southern China and maritime Southeast Asian regions around the South China Sea. While the geographic focus of Clark's expansive monograph is Southeast China–mostly areas historically associated with the Min (閩) cultures in what are now modern-day Fujian Province–Clark takes the much broader and more elusive sphere of wen (文), or "civilization" as his overarching thematic interest in the book. The result is an intriguing, vast, and often enlightening retelling of the history of premodern "South China" in the first millennium C.E., one that criticizes the overly "Sinitic" emphasis of acculturation ...

  • Nomads as Agents of Cultural Change: The Mongols and their Eurasian
           Predecessors ed. by Reuven Amitai and Michal Biran (review)
    • Abstract: In addition to an introduction written by Michal Biran (Hebrew University, Israel), this book includes eleven chapters. Three are for pre- and early historical periods of the Eurasian Steppes, namely the articles of Gideon Shelach Lavi (Hebrew University, Israel), Anatotly M. Khazanov (University of Wisconsin-Madison, United States), and William Honeychurch (Yale University, United States); four focus on medieval Inner Asia and China, including pieces by İsenbike Togan (Bogaziçi University, Turkey), Thomas Allsen (University of New Jersey, United States), Michal Biran (Hebrew University, Israel), and Morris Rossabi (City University of New York and Columbia University, United States); two on Mongols and West Asia by ...

  • The Making of Modern Chinese Medicine, 1850–1960 by Bridie Andrews
           (review)
    • Abstract: Now available in paperback, Bridie Andrews' important work on medicine in modern China is a must-read for all scholars interested in the history of medicine or Chinese science, and more importantly in my opinion, this discerning work has the potential of revising the narrative of modernity in Chinese history. First published by UBC Press in hardcover in 2014, this book builds upon the author's early work and also incorporates new materials that have never been systematically examined in this fashion. To put it simply, the book's main agenda is to question the "purified" dichotomy between Western-imported biomedicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine by arguing that the production of both categories involved long ...

  • Globalization, Translation and Transmission: Sino-Judaic Cultural Identity
           in Kaifeng, China by Moshe Yehuda Bernstein (review)
    • Abstract: Since China's "Reform and Opening" in 1978, Kaifeng, home to that country's ancient, thousand-year old Jewish community, has played host to numerous foreign visitors, both Jewish and non-Jewish. Most only stayed a few days, met several official "show Jews," toured the city and then left, usually bearing the story that these state-sanctioned Jews were not Jews per se but "Han Chinese of Jewish ancestry" whose only connection with Jewish culture were some dim recollections of what their grandfathers had done around the time of the Spring Festival.Few were the Jewish visitors who spoke Chinese and thus could dispense with the government provided interpreter and fewer still remained in Kaifeng long enough to penetrate ...

  • The Ancient State of Puyŏ in Northeast Asia: Archaeology and Historical
           Memory by Mark E. Byington (review)
    • Abstract: These days, any investigation that evaluates the origins of early states in any region of the world that relies on data and information exclusively from just one academic field is problematic to say the least. Fortunately, in The Ancient State of Puyŏ in Northeast Asia, Mark Byington analyzes the origins of the early state of Puyŏ using a combination of historical and up-to-date archaeological records to develop a clearer understanding not only of the origin and evolution of Puyŏ but its possible/probable relationship to the later Korean kingdoms of Koguryŏ and Paekche. This volume is a refreshing investigation into an area of ancient Northeast Asian history that has not been particularly well understood. Byington ... Read More

  • Information, Territory, and Networks: The Crisis and Maintenance of Empire
           in Song China by Hilde De Weerdt (review)
    • Abstract: Information, Territory, and Networks: The Crisis and Maintenance of Empire in Song China is the second monograph by Hilde De Weerdt, one of the most active and prolific scholars in the field of middle period Chinese history. At the highest level of abstraction, the book asks and answers how empire was sustained and how social elites related themselves to the imperial mission in middle and later period Chinese history. It is a welcome and important addition to the growing number of literature that has been revising our conventional picture of the Southern Song dynasty as a period of state retrenchment and social elite's separation from state.1What distinguishes this book from other revisionist works of social ...

  • Opening to China: A Memoir of Normalization, 1981–82 by Charlotte
           Furth (review)
    • Abstract: Charlotte Furth's new book is an on-the-ground account of the very early days of Sino-American normalization in 1981 and 1982 when she worked as a Fulbright exchange scholar at Peking University, China's premier institution of higher education. Best known for her work as a Chinese historian interested in intellectual history, gender, and medicine, Furth here provides a personal account of what it was like for a mid-career American academic to be part of the very fraught process of re-establishing relations between these two giant nations. For those new to the study of China, especially the Chinese mainland, it will reveal a world of foreigners tightly controlled, of expat communities bounded within walls (both real ... Read More

  • Screening Post-1989 China: Critical Analysis of Chinese Film and
           Television by Wing Shan Ho (review)
    • Abstract: Through the finesse of textual readings and critical analyses of seminal screen products, Wing Shan Ho's research enriches our understanding about the perplexing question of state–individual relations in post-1989 China. Her investigation brings to light how the Chinese state, decades into the reform era, or in a postsocialist time, is not monolithic, rigid, or even repressive but is able to absorb values both congruent to and contradictory to its revolutionary past to sustain its claims to authority. Intermingling state-sanctioned zhuxuanlü ("main melody") films and those banned by the State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television (SARFT), Screening Post-1989 China elucidates the multivalent subjectivities ...

  • Theater of the Dead: A Social Turn in Chinese Funerary Art,
           1000–1400 by Jeehee Hong (review)
    • Abstract: Tomb mania has swept the field of Chinese art history in the United States. At the time of the writing of this review, major exhibitions on Qin- and Handynasty tombs are being held concurrently at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the China Institute Gallery in New York. This burgeoning subfield now sees the frequent publication of articles and dissertations, as well as the occasional monograph. Given archaeologists' focus on the excavation of early materials, it is perhaps inevitable that the lion's share of English-language scholarly attention has been devoted to tombs of the Tang and before. Separating itself from this ... Read More

  • Blue Skies over Beijing: Economic Growth and the Environment in China by
           Matthew E. Kahn and Siqi Zheng (review)
    • Abstract: Since the 1980s, energy consumption in China has soared as a result of rapid economic growth and urbanization. Most of this energy is supplied by fossil fuels, primarily coal (66 percent in 2012) and oil (20 percent).1 The combustion of fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas), nitrogen oxides, particulates, and other pollutants into the atmosphere. For the year 2012, the World Health Organization attributed nearly 1,033,000 deaths in China to ambient air pollution, compared to about 38,000 deaths in the United States.2 Another report estimated the cost of air pollution to be 6.5 percent of China's gross domestic product (GDP) between 2000 and 2010.3 Many Chinese citizens get information about air ...

  • Chinese Literature: A Very Short Introduction by Sabina Knight (review)
    • Abstract: How do you write a history of three thousand years of Chinese literature in a concise and insightful way accessible to people from all walks of life' The answer to this near impossible challenge is Sabina Knight's beautifully written little book in which she describes, in 120 pocket-size pages, the development of Chinese writing from Shang dynasty (1600–1046 b.c.) oracle bones to the present time. Embracing the traditional Chinese view of "culture as a continuous river" that encompasses "literature, history and thought as parts of one whole" (p. xvi), Knight offers us a guidebook through the vast terrain of Chinese literature that illuminates fundamental aspects of Chinese civilization without overwhelming the ...

  • The Social Life of Inkstones: Artisans and Scholars in Early Qing China by
           Dorothy Ko (review)
    • Abstract: Of the "four treasures of the study" (wen fang si bao 文房四寶), it is the inkstone that historically enabled the transformative interaction of brush, inksticks, water, and paper into the words and images that constitute the core of Chinese culture during the imperial period. Yet despite this consistent presence, the place of inkstones in scholarship has typically been subordinate to those brush-traces, and their consideration merely that of a tool, or at best, a prized bibelot in a Northern Song or Ming collection. With The Social Life of Inkstones: Artisans and Scholars in Early Qing China, Dorothy Ko investigates the often-overlooked inkstone as a material example that reveals new insights into the range of ...

  • Ethnic China: Identity, Assimilation, and Resistance ed. by Xiaobing Li
           and Patrick Fuliang Shan (review)
    • Abstract: Ethnic China comprises a somewhat surprising and anomalous project, the outcome of several years of collaboration resulting in a collection of eleven essays, an introduction and a conclusion, all by what is referred to on the first page as "Chinese American scholars." The make-up of the books' authors is intriguing–they represent the fields of History, Religion, Sociology, Military Studies, Business, Geography, Women's Studies, and East Asian Studies. Anthropology, which has long been a major contributor to studies of minorities in China, is conspicuously absent. These authors variously hold concurrent positions in Chinese universities, work in business, write poetry, and teach law. None of them claim ... Read More

  • Chinese Just War Ethics: Origin, Development, and Dissent ed. by
           Ping-cheung Lo and Sumner B. Twiss (review)
    • Abstract: To the question of whether or not ancient philosophy still speaks to us today, one significant answer is presented in the volume of collected papers, Chinese Just War Ethics: Origin, Development, and Dissent. Its collection of eleven pieces written by six authors directly confronts the question of the relevance of ancient Chinese philosophy in one specific area of inquiry, just war ethics. In the three sections of the book are analyzed the major philosophical traditions of ancient China: Part 1 on the Military Strategy tradition in which Sunzi's Art of War is prominent; Part 2 on the Confucian tradition, focusing on Mencius and Xunzi as well as on the neo-Confucian thinker Wang Yangming; and Part 3 on the ...

  • The Good Is One, Its Manifestations Many: Confucian Essays on Metaphysics,
           Morals, Ritual, Institutions, and Genders by Robert Cummings Neville
           (review)
    • Abstract: Robert Cummings Neville is a well-known member of the so-called "Boston-Confucianism" school, a philosopher and theologian, and the Dean Emeritus of the School of Theology at Boston University. As he is a proponent of Confucianism as a global philosophy, it is by no means coincidental that his new book aims to provide a new interpretation of the moral and metaphysical traditions of Confucianism, suitable for filling the "vacuum of values" that prevail in the present globalized, yet alienated world.The book is a collection of essays, consisting of a preface, fifteen chapters, an epilogue, and three appendices. The collection represents a well-structured cumulative anthology including various, seemingly fairly ... Read More

  • Significant Soil: Settler Colonialism and Japan's Urban Empire in
           Manchuria by Emer Sinéad O'Dwyer (review)
    • Abstract: O'Dwyer's long-awaited, brilliant socioeconomic analysis of the importance of the Kwantung Leasehold to Japanese settler politics, and later, to Japan's 1931 takeover of Manchuria, gives a classical empirical historical study in the vein of the departed historian Mark Elliott that is both readable, clear, and entertaining, while seasoned with gossipy gems reminiscent of the political scandals of the time. She situates her work in the field as teikoku-shi ["imperial history"], which "considers the broad imperial sphere in which interactions between metropole and colony, as well as interactions among individual colonial spaces are essential to understanding the political dynamics situated in each place" (p. 5). Such ... Read More

  • Mapping Chinese Rangoon: Place and Nation among the Sino-Burmese by Jayde
           Lin Roberts (review)
    • Abstract: This compelling and well-written monograph examines the historical and contemporary experiences of the Chinese in Rangoon, revealing both their similarities with other overseas Chinese communities in Southeast Asia as well as their more specific adaptations to the demographics and shifting political landscapes of colonial and post-independence Burma/Myanmar. This is groundbreaking ethnographic research, carried out over two years (between 2006 and 2009) during the final years of a long period repressive military rule, at a time when most locals remained fearful of contacts and communication with foreigners, even those like Roberts, whose Chinese ethnicity and facility with standard Chinese, Hokkien, and Burmese ...

  • The History Problem: The Politics of War Commemoration in East Asia by
           Hiro Saito (review)
    • Abstract: This book examines whether Japan and its two neighboring countries, namely China and South Korea, can ever solve the history problem surrounding the commemoration of the Asia-Pacific War (1931–1945) that still haunts these three nations to the present day. The book consists of an introduction, a conclusion, and six chapters. Chapter 1, titled "Cross-National Fragmentation, 1945–1964," outlines historical backgrounds from 1945 to 1964. This chapter examines the International Military Tribunal for the Far East (IMTFE) (1946–1948), the so-called reverse course, or conservative shift in domestic and international politics starting from the late 1940s, the restoration of the pensions for the veterans and the bereaved ...

  • Transforming Patriarchy: Chinese Families in the Twenty-First Century ed.
           by Gonçalo D. Santos and Stevan Harrell (review)
    • Abstract: Arguably, ethnographic studies in China have contributed most significantly to comparative anthropology in the arenas of family and kinship and, especially, gender studies. The works of Margery Wolf in particular figured centrally in the second-wave feminism that profoundly changed the discipline in the 1970s. The outlines of Chinese-style patriliny, virilocality, gender ideology, and associated phenomena became a widely discussed example of "patriarchy"–to the degree that it is difficult to disentangle the history of late twentieth-century anthropology of Chinese societies (including, in addition to mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong's New Territories, and overseas Chinese communities in Southeast Asia) from wider ...

  • A World Trimmed with Fur: Wild Things, Pristine Places, and the Natural
           Fringes of Qing Rule by Jonathan Schlesinger (review)
    • Abstract: This is a particularly fine example of the fresh insights that can be gained by viewing history from multiple angles—in this case in particular by taking into account the perspective of the northern and northeastern frontiers of China as well as the center, and by using multiple languages to access sets of archival materials previously little used by scholars working primarily in Western languages. There was a time when using Chinese archives at all merited comment; no more, however, and in this book Jonathan Schlesinger has drawn on a wide range of archival and published sources not only in Chinese but also in Mongolian, Manchu, Russian, and Korean as well as in Japanese and English. While a few of these may exist ... Read More

  • The Zoomorphic Imagination in Chinese Art and Culture ed. by Jerome
           Silbergeld and Eugene Y. Wang (review)
    • Abstract: In the most practical sense, this edited volume is not recommended for beach reading: its impressive heft would significantly weigh down any tote, and the dark ink painting of a dragon on the cover, discussed by Jennifer Purtle in chapter 7, seems quite persuasive in its ability to summon rain. That is not to say, however, that the book is not to be thoroughly enjoyed in a different context. United under the intriguing topic of zoomorphism, which broadly "refers to the attribution of animal characteristics to humans, whether done verbally or visually, whether kindly or insultingly" (p. 1), the contributors effectively bring to life a fascinating array of information and images through their rigorous historical ...

  • A Chinese Traveler in Medieval Korea: Xu Jing's Illustrated Account of the
           Xuanhe Embassy to Koryŏ trans. by Sem Vermeersch (review)
    • Abstract: Many of us teach in History departments and cannot expect foreign language skills of undergraduates. The goal is to entice them toward thoughtful engagement with Eastern Eurasia, which may occasionally elicit enough commitment to learn the language(s) and enter academia, but is mostly about producing graduates with wider horizons and better understanding of difference. When one has to teach even upper level courses with works in translation, there are never enough. Translations are no longer advisable as PhD projects, they do not readily facilitate rapid career advancement, and publishers have to be persuaded that they will sell. Accordingly, expansions of the range available are relatively infrequent and always ... Read More

  • Confucian Image Politics: Masculine Morality in Seventeenth-Century China
           by Ying Zhang (review)
    • Abstract: Confucian Image Politics: Masculine Morality in Seventeenth-Century China offers a powerful, highly original analysis of political discourse and factional struggle from the late Ming dynasty through the early Qing. Through an exploration of elite "image politics," Ying Zhang delineates the moral and rhetorical parameters within which power struggles had to be fought out, with the emperor as final arbiter: the "language of political communication," in her phrasing.The last decades of the Ming dynasty witnessed vicious, internecine conflict between bureaucratic factions (often associated with entrenched regional cliques) that paralyzed the imperial center, even as the empire was being torn apart within by rebellion ...

  • 1956: Mao's China and the Hungarian Crisis by Zhu Dandan (review)
    • Abstract: In terms of Cold War great-power relations, certain events such as the Korean War and the Cuban Missile Crisis loom large in the history books. While scholars have no trouble agreeing that these moments are important, academic opinion diverges on the questions of why these events occurred and why they are significant. This difference is mostly a matter of perspective, as each event had important international and domestic implications. Indeed, the existence of these multiple angles, as well as the ongoing availability of new source materials, ensures that Cold War Studies remains an exciting and energetic field.One of the major incidents of the early Cold War period was the 1956 Hungarian Crisis. After the death ... Read More
