Reporting for China: How Chinese Correspondents Work with the World

Ny

Reporting for China: How Chinese Correspondents Work with the World by Ny

While Western media are shrinking their foreign correspondent networks, Chinese media, for the first time in history, are rapidly expanding worldwide. The Chinese government is financing most of this growth, hoping to strengthen its influence and improve its public image. But do these reporters willingly serve formulated agendas or do they follow their own interests? And are they changing Chinese citizens� views of the world?

Based on interviews and informal conversations with over seventy current and former correspondents, Reporting for China documents a diverse group of professionals who...

The Social Life of Kimono: Japanese Fashion Past and Present

Sheila Cliffe

The Social Life of Kimono: Japanese Fashion Past and Present by Sheila CliffeThe kimono is an iconic garment with a history as rich and colourful as the textiles from which it is crafted. Deeply associated with Japanese culture both past and present, it has often been thought of as a highly gendered, rigidly traditional and unchanging national costume. This book challenges that perception, revealing the nuanced meanings and messages behind the kimono from the point of view of its wearers and producers, many of whom Â? both men and women Â? see the garment as a vehicle for self-expression.

Taking a material culture approach, The Social Life of Kimono is the first study...

The History of Education in Japan (1600 - 2000)

Masashi Tsujimoto

The History of Education in Japan (1600 - 2000) by Masashi TsujimotoAs one of the most rapid and earliest nations to achieve "western-modernisation", much of Japan's success stems from its fruitful literacy history in the Tokugawa Shogunate, as well as later influences by Western educational ideals, and consequent economic and democratic conflicts in Japan. Locally written, put together by Japanese historians, this book seeks to inform English readers of how education and schooling contributed to the unique Japanese modernisation and industrialisation unlike other East Asian nations. These historical insights can be applied to crises in the formal and systemised...

Symptoms of an Unruly Age: Li Zhi and Cultural Manifestations of Early Modernity

Rivi Handler-Spitz

Symptoms of an Unruly Age: Li Zhi and Cultural Manifestations of Early Modernity by Rivi Handler-Spitz

Symptoms of an Unruly Age compares the writings of Li Zhi (1527�1602) and his late-Ming compatriots to texts composed by their European contemporaries, including Montaigne, Shakespeare, and Cervantes. Emphasizing aesthetic patterns that transcend national boundaries, Rivi Handler-Spitz explores these works as culturally distinct responses to similar social and economic tensions affecting early modern cultures on both ends of Eurasia.

The paradoxes, ironies, and self-contradictions that pervade these works are symptomatic of the hypocrisy, social posturing, and counterfeiting that afflicted...

Idle Talk under the Bean Arbor: A Seventeenth-Century Chinese Story Collection

Aina the Layman & Ziran the Eccentric Wanderer

Idle Talk under the Bean Arbor: A Seventeenth-Century Chinese Story Collection by Aina the Layman & Ziran the Eccentric Wanderer

Written around 1660, the unique Chinese short story collection Idle Talk under the Bean Arbor (Doupeng xianhua), by the author known only as Aina the Layman, uses the seemingly innocuous setting of neighbors swapping yarns on hot summer days under a shady arbor to create a series of stories that embody deep disillusionment with traditional values. The tales, ostensibly told by different narrators, parody heroic legends and explore issues that contributed to the fall of the Ming dynasty a couple of decades before this collection was written, including self-centeredness and social violence. These...

Dictators Without Borders: Power and Money in Central Asia

Alexander A. Cooley & John Heathershaw

Dictators Without Borders: Power and Money in Central Asia by Alexander A. Cooley & John HeathershawA penetrating look into the unrecognized and unregulated links between autocratic regimes in Central Asia and centers of power and wealth throughout the West

Weak, corrupt, and politically unstable, the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan are dismissed as isolated and irrelevant to the outside world. But are they? This hard-hitting book argues that Central Asia is in reality a globalization leader with extensive involvement in economics, politics and security dynamics beyond its borders. Yet Central Asia's international activities are mostly hidden from...

G. William Skinner

Rural China on the Eve of Revolution: Sichuan Fieldnotes, 1949-1950 by G. William Skinner

In 1949, G. William Skinner, a Cornell University graduate student, set off for southwest China to conduct field research on rural social structure. He settled near the market town of Gaodianzi, Sichuan, and lived there for two and a half months, until the newly arrived Communists asked him to leave. During his time in Sichuan, Skinner kept detailed field notes and took scores of photos of rural life and unfolding events.

Skinner went on to become a giant in his field�his obituary in American Anthropologist called him �the world�s most influential anthropologist of China.� A key portion...

Reading Orientalism: Said and the Unsaid

Daniel Martin Varisco

Reading Orientalism: Said and the Unsaid by Daniel Martin Varisco

The late Edward Said remains one of the most influential critics and public intellectuals of our time, with lasting contributions to many disciplines. Much of his reputation derives from the phenomenal multidisciplinary influence of his 1978 book Orientalism. Said's seminal polemic analyzes novels, travelogues, and academic texts to argue that a dominant discourse of West over East has warped virtually all past European and American representation of the Near East. But despite the book's wide acclaim, no systematic critical survey of the rhetoric in Said's representation of Orientalism and the...
