Letter from the editors: Columbia University Press has a long history of bringing the Asian classics to an Anglophone audience. The books we present to you in this 2020 catalog continue that tradition, while also paying close attention to the larger role of Asia in the world. These books span many fields in Asian studies—history, politics, literary studies, philosophy, religion, and film—and reflect the interdisciplinary and global approach of our list. Eugenia Lean’s Vernacular Industrialism in China explores how Chen Diexian (1879–1940) drew on wideranging literati interests and abilities—including a facility for languages—to become a successful modern entrepreneur. Meanwhile, William Hedberg questions the very concept of a national canon with The Japanese Discovery of Chinese Fiction, and Tsuji Nobuo’s History of Art in Japan—now available in a full-color paperback edition—traces a tradition of artistic production that continues to have significant influence on aesthetics worldwide. Among the many outstanding philosophy and religion titles in this year’s catalog, several deserve special attention. Beef, Brahmins, and Broken Men is an annotated critical selection from B. R. Ambedkar’s classic work The Untouchables, which provides his speculative historical account of how the Dalits came to exist. Wisdom as a Way of Life: Theravāda Buddhism Reimagined is the final work of Steven Collins; by reinterpreting Theravāda texts and practices as guides to the development of the self, it promises to change the field of Buddhist studies. And Buddhism and Medicine: An Anthology of Modern and Contemporary Sources, edited by C. Pierce Salguero, completes his vast project to document the global historical relationship between Buddhism and medicine. In history and politics, Columbia continues its long tradition of publishing cutting-edge works that speak to Asia’s past and present. We are especially pleased to be publishing new global histories of Asia that span a wide range of periods, from Adam Clulow’s Amboina, 1623: Fear and Conspiracy on the Edge of Empire to Raja Adal’s Beauty in the Age of Empire: Japan, Egypt, and the Global History of Aesthetic Education. These works join our recent modern histories of the region, such as Robert Culp’s The Power of Print in Modern China: Intellectuals and Industrial Publishing from the End of Empire to Maoist State Socialism and Craig Etcheson’s detailed account of the Cambodian war crimes trials, Extraordinary Justice: Law, Politics, and the Khmer Rouge Tribunals. In politics, Nicholas Jepson explores the effects of China’s global investments in In China’s Wake: How the Commodity Boom Transformed Development Strategies in the Global South. And in Dying for Rights: Putting North Korea’s Human Rights Abuses on the Record, Sandra Fahy provides a moving account of one of the biggest political and human rights challenges in East Asia today. Finally, we hope you will peruse our new translations, particularly for use in your classrooms. Wai-yee Li’s Plum Shadows and Plank Bridge: Two Memoirs About Courtesans combines a pitch-perfect translation with an excellent introduction to the Ming-Qing transition. A Couple of Soles is the first Li Yu play to be available in English translation, and Jing Shen and Robert Hegel have done a fine job of capturing the humor of the original. For those more interested in the present day, Timothy Cheek, David Ownby, and Joshua A. Fogel have brought together translations from each of China’s main intellectual clusters--liberals, the New Left, and New Confucians—in Voices from the Chinese Century. And There a Petal Silently Falls, a haunting response to the Kwangju Massacre of 1980, is newly available in paperback. Sincerely,

Caelyn Cobb, editor for global history and politics; Christine Dunbar, editor for Asian humanities and translations; Wendy Lochner, publisher for philosophy and religion

Plum Shadows and Plank Bridge

Vietnamese Short Stories of the American War and Its Aftermath

Two Memoirs About Courtesans

Mao Xiang and Yu Huai Translated and edited by Wai-yee Li

Translated and edited by Quan Manh Ha and Joseph Babcock Foreword by Bao Ninh

In this anthology, Vietnamese writers describe their experience of what they call the American War and its lasting legacy through the lens of their own vital artistic visions. The twenty short stories collected in Other Moons range from the intensely personal to narratives that deal with larger questions of remembrance, trauma, and healing.

This volume presents two memoirs by famous men of letters, Reminiscences of the Plum Shadows Convent by Mao Xiang (1611–93) and Miscellaneous Records of Plank Bridge by Yu Huai (1616–96), that recall times spent with courtesans. They evoke the courtesan world in the final decades of the Ming dynasty and the aftermath of its collapse.

Nathan Shockey

Yurou Zhong

Early twentieth-century Japan was newly awash in typographic text and mass-produced print. In The Typographic Imagination, Nathan Shockey charts the relationships among prose, politics, and print capitalism as he explores how this commercial print revolution transformed Japan’s media ecology and traces the possibilities and pitfalls of type as a force for radical social change.

For nearly half of the twentieth century, reformers waged war on the Chinese script. In Chinese Grammatology, Yurou Zhong traces the origins, transmutations, and containment of this script revolution to provide a groundbreaking account of its formative effects on Chinese literature and culture and its lasting implications.

The Hindi Canon

The Dancing Poet

Intellectuals, Processes, Criticism

Rabindranath Tagore and Modernity in Performance

Mrityunjay Tripathi

Rimli Bhattacharya

Translated by Shad Naved

This book presents a systematic but critical account of the beginnings, development, and history of the process of canonization in Hindi via such exemplary figures as George Grierson, Garcin de Tassy, Ramchandra Shukla, Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Muktibodh, Namwar Singh, and Nirmal Verma, among others. It proposes an intellectual history of Hindi criticism in the twentieth century, which today faces the challenges of a decanonization move in the form of feminist and Dalit thought.

Drawing on a range of visual archives and personal collections, this book casts Rabindranath Tagore as the “Dancing Poet,” in whom the contours of a pan-Indian diversity seek to merge, albeit selectively, with that of the world, eschewing the territorial borders of the nation-state while reiterating civilizational strands. Rimli Bhattacharya outlines the contradictions and possibilities in such aspirations, central to the new cultural texts that Tagore seeks to produce in lyric, songs, dance, image, or narrative.

How Island Southeast Asia Became a Mass Exporter of Labor

Records of the 1827 Osaka Incident

Translated and with an introduction by Fumiko Miyazaki, Kate Wildman Nakai, and Mark Teeuwen

Island Southeast Asia was once a thriving region with products that found eager consumers from China to Europe. Today, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia are primarily exporters of their surplus of cheap labor. How did a prosperous region become a peripheral one? Ulbe Bosma draws on new archival sources from the colonial period to the present to demonstrate how high demographic growth and a long history of bonded labor relegated Southeast Asia to the margins of the global economy. $65.00 / £50.00 cloth 978-0-231-18852-4

Fear and Conspiracy on the Edge of Empire

The Justice Jeevan Lal Kapur Commission of Inquiry Report

Adam Clulow

Annotated and edited by Teesta Setalvad This volume brings to light the report of the Kapur Commission, which was appointed by the government of India in 1965 to examine the depth and scope of the conspiracy that lay behind the killing of Gandhi. This three-volume report has been absent from the public domain though it contains invaluable evidence of the extent of the authorities’ complicity.

In 1623, Dutch authorities executed twenty-one alleged conspirators over a plot to seize a castle on a remote set of islands in what is now eastern Indonesia. In this landmark study, Adam Clulow presents a new perspective on the Amboina case that aims to move beyond the debate over guilt or innocence.

Alain Arrault

Translated by Lina Verchery

Among hundreds of thousands of ancient graves and tombs excavated to date in China, the Mancheng site stands out for its unparalleled complexity and richness. It features two juxtaposed burials, those of the first king and queen of the Zhongshan kingdom (dated late second century BCE).This book is the first scholarly monograph on an undisturbed and fully excavated early Chinese royal burial site. $60.00 / £50.00 cloth 978-0-231-19102-9

In the past twenty years, work on the local culture of central Hunan has been one of the most exciting sources for rethinking the nature and variety of Chinese local society. At the heart of this society is a kind of statuary found nowhere else in China— sculpted images of local people, primarily religious specialists of a wide range, but also parents and ancestors. Based on two decades of international collaborative research, Alain Arrault focuses on some 4,000 of these statues.

POLITICS/ECONOMICS The China-U.S. Trade War and Their Future Economic Relations

China’s Hong Kong

Lawrence J. Lau

Tim Summers

Lawrence J. Lau examines various economic statistics of the past few decades to show that while the real effects of the China-U.S. trade war in 2018 are not negligible, they are relatively manageable for both nations. By countering the rise of xenophobia, Lau envisions China-U.S. economic collaboration as a potentially positive-sum game that will enable each country to fully use the other’s currently underutilized resources.

The Politics of a Global City

This book looks afresh at the constitutional settlement under which Hong Kong became a Special Administrative Region of the PRC.

The Search for a New Model

China and the South China Sea Dispute

Kerry Brown

David Groten

At a time when China’s role in the world is becoming the focus of international business strategy and Brexit is pushing the UK to look to the rest of the world for trade and investment, Kerry Brown assesses the potential for a new “golden age” of UK-China relations and what the UK needs to understand about China before embarking on such a venture.

The rise of China represents a major challenge for regional stability in Southeast Asia. This book contends that experiences of perceived disrespect by the Chinese side have contributed to its increasingly bold stance toward the South China Sea dispute. However, conflict is not inevitable, and the book provides a number of policy recommendations.

Michael J. Walsh

Religion, China, and the Formation of the Nation-State

Commentary on the Scripture of Change

Edited and translated by Joseph A. Adler One of the most influential commentaries on the Yijing (I Ching), or Scripture of Change, for the past thousand years has been that of Zhu Xi (1130– 1200). Joseph A. Adler’s translation of the Yijing includes for the first time in any Western language Zhu Xi’s commentary in full.

Stating the Sacred offers a novel approach to nation-state formation, arguing that its most critical element is how the state sacralizes the nation. Focusing primarily on China, Michael J. Walsh argues that the foundational role of the sacred makes all nation-states religious states.
