    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 155.00

    Twentieth-century China has been caught between a desire to increase its wealth and power in line with other advanced nations, which, by implication, means copying their institutions, practices and values, whilst simultaneously seeking to preserve China?s independence and historically formed identity. Over time, Chinese philosophers, writers, artists... more...

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2014; US$ 19.99

    In 1949, Mao Zedong announced the birth of the People's Republic of China, a proclamation to the world that, after centuries of war and social conflict, China had emerged as one nation. Since then, this idea has been propagated by broadcasts of marches and mass demonstrations of unity, designed for the benefit of the international community. For many... more...

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 32.00

    The contributors to this volume range over 2,000 years of history as they show how Confucian values spread throughout the region in premodern times and how these values were transformed in an age of modernization.

  • Confucianism and Family Rituals in Imperial Chinaby Patricia Buckley Ebrey

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.50

    To explore the historical connections between Confucianism and Chinese society, this book examines the social and cultural processes through which Confucian texts on family rituals were written, circulated, interpreted, and used as guides to action. Weddings, funerals, and ancestral rites were central features of Chinese culture; they gave drama to... more...

  • The Chinese and the Japaneseby Akira Iriye

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 48.00

  • Policies of Chaosby III Lynn T. White

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 47.50

    The tumult of the Cultural Revolution after 1966 is often blamed on a few leaders in Beijing, or on long-term egalitarian ideals, or on communist or Chinese political cultures.
