  • Herself an Autobiographer: Writing Women’s Self-Representation in
           the Qing
    • Abstract: Since the 1990s, much work has been done to debunk the monolithic image of the victimized premodern Chinese woman propagated by the May Fourth generation. The works of Susan Man, Dorothy Ko, and Kang-I Sun Chang, among others, have effectively recuperated historical female subjectivity and agency by uncovering how Chinese women negotiated, contested, and transcended gender norms and prevailing ideologies. Grace Fong’s seminal monograph Herself an Author: Gender, Agency, and Writing in Late Imperial China (2008) explores how women constituted multiple “subject positions” in the process of writing through their extra-familial identities as authors, compilers, chroniclers, and critics.1 Both a resonance and ...

  • The Heir and the Sage: Dynastic Legend in Early China by Sarah Allan
           (review)
    • Abstract: The original edition of Sarah Allan’s The Heir and the Sage was published in 1981 by the Chinese Materials Center (San Francisco), and has since become scarce and expensive on the used-book market. If you wanted to add it to your collection but could not find a copy, this reissue gives you another chance. As Allan explains in her new preface (p. ix), the revisions for this volume consist of corrections of unspecified minor errors, a new introduction, and the addition of her previously published article “The Identities of Taigong Wang in Zhou and Han Literature” (1972–1973) as an appendix. The occasion is the publication of her book Buried Ideas: Legends of Abdication and Ideal Government in Early ... Read More

  • A Modern Miscellany: Shanghai Cartoon Artists, Shao Xunmei’s Circle, and
           the Travels of Jack Chen, 1926–1938 by Paul Bevan (review)
    • Abstract: Although it focuses on a small group of Chinese cartoonists in interwar Shanghai and the foreigners who influenced them, this volume is a major contribution to modern Chinese studies in general. That is because it traces the ideological development of Shanghai artists and writers, who were the avant-garde of the whole country, from the aestheticism of Shao Xunmei to the leftist activism of Lu Xun. In this respect, Shanghai’s literati, unusual though they were, might be seen as a microcosm of Chinese society at the time. Furthermore, the book is relevant to current cross-cultural studies, since it is mainly about how Chinese artists adapted European sources to their own needs and styles at a time when China ...

  • Fragile Elite: The Dilemmas of China’s Top University Students by
           Susanne Bregnbæk (review)
    • Abstract: In this engaging book, Susanne Bregnbæk applies the concept of the Oedipal project—“the universal existential need to establish some degree of separation from the will of parents and, by extension, the will of the state” (p. 4)—to understand current Chinese students studying at Tsinghua University and Beijing University (the top two universities in China). Utilizing data collected from two fieldwork projects in 2005 and 2007, respectively, the author tries to address the dilemma these students face and the ways in which they cope. She argues that these young adults, although widely regarded as successful and under little pressure, actually suffer from a double bind. They are stuck between self-sacrifice and ... Read More

  • The Grand Scribe’s Records, Volume X: The Memoirs of Han China, Part III
           by Ssu-ma Ch’ien (review)
    • Abstract: The first volume of William Nienhauser’s Grand Scribe’s Records appeared in 1994, the same year that China Review International published its first issue, with the lofty ambition of producing a scholarly and heavily annotated English translation of Sima Qian’s Shiji that would complement Burton Watson’s fluent partial translation of 1961. Watson’s version included sixty-five full or partial chapters (out of the original 130), with thirteen additional chapters added in a 1993 second edition. In the nearly quarter-century since that first volume, Nienhauser has kept his translation project moving forward, with seven books to date that offer a total of eighty-three full Shiji chapters, which means that with the ...

  • Creativity Class: Art School and Culture Work in Postsocialist China by
           Lily Chumley (review)
    • Abstract: Lily Chumley’s book, Creativity Class: Art School and Culture Work in Postsocialist China, places a valuable and hitherto largely absent focus on art education as a vector of cultural creativity in contemporary China. Chumley’s assessment of art education and cultural creativity in contemporary China as fundamentally enmeshed with wider disciplining sociopolitical and economic discourses is convincing and well supported by primary research. That assessment is, however, insufficiently expansive in its accounting for the relationship between aesthetic modernity and society in the particular contexts of China. The “art academy” is a vexed institution in relation to the development of ... Read More

  • Radical Inequalities: China’s Revolutionary Welfare State in Comparative
           Perspective by Nara Dillon (review)
    • Abstract: Rampant inequality and social stratification is so closely tied to the narrative of China’s “reform and opening up” that we are apt to forget its historical roots. As Jeremy Brown has shown with respect to northern China, urban spaces in the Mao era were sites of immense economic privilege.1 Under Mao, people did everything in their power to retain the right to reside in urban areas and avoid exile to the countryside. In Radical Inequalities, Nara Dillon’s detailed focus on the welfare state adds to our understanding of the history of socioeconomic inequality in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Her study examines welfare reform between the 1940s and the 1960s in order to understand the “paradox of an ... Read More

  • From Fu Manchu to Kung Fu Panda: Images of China in American Film by Naomi
           Greene (review)
    • Abstract: From the worldwide popular figures of Fu Manchu, Charlie Chan, Kung Fu Panda, and Mulan to famed film classics such as Broken Blossoms, The Good Earth, Shanghai Express, The Manchurian Candidate, and Kundun, Naomi Greene’s From Fu Manchu to Kung Fu Panda: Images of China in American Film is a thorough and brilliant study that pivots toward one central question: how has China been perceived and portrayed in American films from the silent era to this day' The author, thereby, navigates a wide range of significant symptomatic works, figures, and moments involved in the formation of Hollywood’s view of China and treats the subject carefully with academic rigor, keenness, and compassion. Recent years ... Read More

  • China’s Military Transformation by You Ji (review)
    • Abstract: China’s military is a mystery to many, but not to the author of this book, You Ji. You Ji’s earlier book The Armed Forces of China was the primer for all who wanted to understand the Chinese military. With this new book, China’s Military Transformation, the author continues his primacy as the best source for understanding the People’s Liberation Army (PLA)—that is, the Chinese military—and its role within China. You Ji, professor of international relations at Macau University, not only gives a detailed portrayal of China’s military transformation but also explains that the transformation may be driving a wedge between the Chinese Communist Party and the military. The book, which is full of information ... Read More

  • Ripple on Stagnant Water by Li Jieren, and: Fact in Fiction: 1920s China
           and Ba Jin’s Family by Kristin Stapleton (review)
    • Abstract: I believe that if there were ever any doubt as to the authenticity of the Koran, this lack of camels would suffice to prove that it is Arab. It is written by Mohammed, and Mohammed, as an Arab, had no reason to know that camels were particularly Arab; they were, for him, a part of reality, and he had no reason to single them out, while the first thing a forger, a tourist, or an Arab nationalist would do is bring on the camels, whole caravans of camels on every page; but Mohammed, as an Arab, was unconcerned; he knew he could be Arab without camels. I believe that we Argentines can be like Mohammed; we can believe in the possibility of being Argentine without abounding in local color. The ripple on ... Read More

  • Celestial Masters: History and Ritual in Early Daoist Communities by Terry
           F. Kleeman (review)
    • Abstract: The beginning of Terry Kleeman’s magisterial history of early Daoism reads like something from a Judge Dee murder mystery. Did Zhang Lu, grandson of the enigmatic cult leader Zhang Ling, ambush his erstwhile superior Marshall Zhang Xiu and steal his force' Or did Zhang Lu merely adopt and expand Zhang Xiu’s teachings without actually having him killed' Did the provincial governor Liu Yan’s son then have Zhang Lu’s mother assassinated and her family exterminated' Such are the murky origins of Celestial Masters Daoism, at least as recorded in the official histories of the era. Kleeman’s approach to this historical material in the first four chapters of his book is to treat the source materials separately. ... Read More

  • Red Genesis: The Hunan First Normal School and the Creation of Chinese
           Communism, 1903–1921 by Liyan Liu (review)
    • Abstract: At the beginning of her book, Liyan Liu asks a fascinating question: How did Hunan’s First Normal School “foster so many radical intellectuals who became early leaders of Chinese Communism'” (p. 13). Readers will likely already know that First Normal’s most famous graduate was Mao Zedong; however, a number of other faculty and students distinguished themselves. Indeed, First Normal represented the cutting edge of education at the beginning of the twentieth century. This alone makes Liyan Liu’s study important and ambitious. This book helps readers understand how Chinese radicalism fits within the wider scope of China’s modern history. Liu’s work specifically anchors Mao and the early communist movement to ... Read More

  • My Tibetan Childhood: When Ice Shattered Stone by Naktsang Nulo (review)
    • Abstract: I now regret having agreed to write a review for this book because I am afraid that an interpretation from a “sophisticated” (which means “more-than-necessary” to some) anthropologist-sociologist may tarnish the unspoiled natural flow of the childhood experiences of Naktsang Nulo. I am both puzzled and amazed by the fact that a retired man like Nulo could write such an “intimate” book that reads as if everything were happening right in front of us, conveyed through the eyes of a perpetually ten-year-old child. This surely suggests that an innocent child still lives in Nulo’s heart. A renowned Tibetologist and reincarnate lama from my hometown of Gyalrong in Sichuan, Professor Tsanlha Ngawang, in his late ... Read More

  • Self-Realization through Confucian Learning: A Contemporary Reconstruction
           of Xunzi’s Ethics by Siufu Tang (review)
    • Abstract: Siufu Tang’s work highlights the contribution of one of the early Confucian philosophers, Xunzi (ca. 310–ca. 235 b.c.e., alt. ca. 314–ca. 217 b.c.e.), whose ideas tend to be overlooked in the classical canon dominated by Confucius (551–479 b.c.e.) and Mencius (372–289 b.c.e.; alt. 385–303/302 b.c.e.). The essence of Tang’s monograph argues that Xunzi’s position on moral philosophy is one whereby the goodness of one’s true nature (xing 性) is not innate—in contrast to Mencius and Confucius—and that Xunzi views xing predominantly as the “chaotic and destructive tendency of natural desires and feelings” (pp. 6–7), which would create anarchy if not educated and curtailed by human agency. That is, the true nature ... Read More

  • Buddhist Stone Sutras in China. Sichuan Province, ed. by Claudia Wenzel
           and Sun Hua (review)
    • Abstract: With this volume of the series published under the chief editorship of Lothar Ledderose, we return to the “Grove of the Reclining Buddha” (Wofoyuan) situated in Ziyang City, Anyue County, in the eastern part of Sichuan Province, to which the first volume of the series on Sichuan was also dedicated. (My review of this first volume was published in 2013 in China Review International 20, nos. 3&4.) Whereas the first volume on Sichuan presented and interpreted the northern side of the “Grove of the Reclining Buddha,” the present volume turns our attention to a cluster of caves (caves 46, 51, and 58, in section C) on the southern side. As in all other volumes of this fully bilingual series, a topographical ... Read More
