  • Born Redby Yuan Gao

    Stanford University Press 1987; US$ 30.95

    Born Red is an artistically wrought personal account, written very much from inside the experience, of the years 1966-1969, when the author was a young teenager at middle school. It was in the middle schools that much of the fury of the Cultural Revolution and Red Guard movement was spent, and Gao was caught up in very dramatic events, which he recounts... more...

    Westview Press 2008; US$ 29.99

  • Pax Sinicaby Y.Y. Kueh

    Hong Kong University Press, HKU 2012; US$ 45.00

    The book confronts the popular conjecture of a Pax Sinica emerging to replace Pax Americana in the wake of global financial crisis.

  • Sinologismby Ming Dong Gu

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 145.00

    Why, for centuries, have the West and the world continuously produced China knowledge that deviates from Chinese realities? Why, since the mid-nineteenth century, have Chinese intellectuals oscillated between commendation and condemnation of their own culture, and between fetishization and demonization of all things Western? And why have some of the... more...

  • Chinese Encyclopaedias of New Global Knowledge (1870-1930)by Milena Dole?elová-Velingerová; Rudolf G. Wagner

  • Demystifying Chinaby Naomi Standen

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2012; US$ 23.99

    For westerners, China?s history is often reduced to a choice between timeless Confucian ideals or incomprehensible barbarisms such as footbinding or mass slaughter. This engaging and deeply knowledgeable book vigorously counters such oversimplifications. In concise and accessible style, China experts present cutting-edge research in an accessible... more...
