The Ideological Transformation of 20th Century Chinese Literature XIE Mian (Peking University) Rulers in the late-Qing dynasty era were subjected to unwilling reforms which saw the abolition of the “eight-legged” essays and the imperial examination as these had notoriously restricted the thinking of the Chinese literati. Shortly after the fall of the Qing, leaders of the New Culture Movement started to promote vernacular literature, stressed the need for a re-examination of the ancient classics, and championed the popularization of Western values. After that, Chinese literature was taken on a completely different trajectory, not only in stylistic terms but also in ideological ones. This book is the fruit of poet and critic Xie Mian’s decades-long study of contemporary Chinese literature. Grouped thematically and in accordance with the periods in discussion, this collection of essays provides an integrated examination of the historical backdrop and ideologies that underpinned Chinese literature from the days of the New Culture Movement to the New Era beyond the Cultural Revolution through a mix of microscopic criticisms and macroscopic overviews.

A History of Chu ZHANG Zhengming The fruit of late historian and accomplished Chu expert Zhang Zhengming’s long and dedicated research, A History of Chu unfolds the intriguing history of a powerful feudal state in the Zhou dynasty. Chu, once deemed “barbarian” in its southern territory, gradually rose to prominence on the shores of the Yangtze as the Zhou court weakened. With King Zhuang recognized as hegemonial lord towards the late Spring and Autumn period, Chu subdued many Central Plain states and eventually survived into the Warring States period as a major power. From its emergence to the realization of its ambitious dreams of conquest and hegemony, the vast land of Chu boasted a culture that was distinctly different from the Central Plain states.
ZHANG Zhengming (1928–2006) was a pioneer of Chu studies and prominent researcher of ethnic minority history. A graduate of Tsinghua University, he started his career in government ethnic minority committees in the 1950s. In 1979, his first monograph A History of the Khitans won him wide recognition in the field of minority historical studies, and in 1981, he facilitated the founding of the Chu Research Institute at the Hubei Academy of Social Sciences. He was Professor at the School of History and Culture of Central China Normal University and held vice presidency positions at the Chinese Association for Nationality History and the Chinese Association of Quyuan. His other notable works include A History of Chu Culture (1981), A Chronicle of Chu Culture (1988), and Qin and Chu (2007).

Zhang Zhengming spent years studying and gathering both historical records and archaeological finds, carefully compiling his findings into a Chu-centric narrative that has long been an ignored perspective in traditional Chinese history. A History of Chu documents the entirety of the Chu's remarkable and dramatic existence. It begins with an examination of the legendary origins of the Chu ruling house, details the periods of internal strife and prosperity during the state’s contention for power, pays tribute to the people that remained defiant in conquest, and finishes with an account of the revived Chu’s defeat to Han after the collapse of the Qin dynasty.
Unequal Treaties and China WANG Jianlang (Chinese Academy of Social Sciences) From the first Opium War (1839-1842) and until the birth of New China in 1949, China was forced to sign multiple unequal treaties by foreign imperialist and invading powers. In these treaties, China conceded many of its sovereign rights in terms of territory and commerce. Ever since the time of the first unequal treaty (the Treaty of Nanjing), the people of China had struggled to invalidate these unequal treaties. This series provides a comprehensive overview of China’s history of fighting against these unequal treaties, and looks at how those unequal treaties from foreign powers have shaped China’s policies even up until the modern day. WANG Jianlang is the President of the Institute of Modern History, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), the General Secretary of the Association of Chinese Historians, and Dean of the Department of Modern History of the Graduate School, CASS.

Wang Jianlang's book provides a vivid and well documented account of the ignominious origins and early development of the unequal treaty system in China, demonstrating why the Chinese government and its citizens considered the return of Hong Kong to the Mainland in 1997 to symbolize the "washing away of one hundred years of national shame." --Richard J Smith, George and Nancy Rupp Professor of Humanities, Rice University 3

The book contextualizes the assessment of the monitoring function of institutional investors in the Chinese economy using mixed research methods including interviews, secondary data analysis, and a case study. Noting the diverse types of institutional investors in China, author Yuan Rongli singles out financial institutions, particularly securities investment funds and securities companies, which are counterparts of “institutional investors” as traditionally understood, as she probes into the actual functioning of financial institutions in corporate governance as well as the corresponding effects on company performance.

The History and Spirit of Chinese Art ZHANG Fa (Renmin University of China) Art is always a product of cultural evolution, and The History and Spirit of Chinese Art looks at this universal process as it unfolded in ancient China. With “mountain-water” landscape paintings, works of classical Chinese calligraphy, and blue and white porcelain widely displayed in museums and fetching high prices in auction houses worldwide, Chinese art is no longer foreign to the Western world. However, to many, the making of such cultural artefacts remains an enigmatic process. Indeed, Chinese art, the product of such an old civilization, was shaped by an ongoing process of evolution along the ebbs and flows of China’s history as a nation. Aesthetics expert Zhang Fa deciphers the philosophies and thoughts that have defined Chinese art since the very beginning of the Chinese civilization, moving through the dynastic landmarks of artistic development with discussions of numerous art forms including paintings, architecture, dance and music, calligraphy, and literature. • Origins of Chinese Artistic Motifs in Pre-Qin Primitive Society

The Capital of the Yuan Dynasty CHEN Gaohua (Chinese Academy of Social Sciences) The Yuan Dynasty was different from other dynasties in the history of China, and so was its capital, Dadu, the city that laid the foundation for what would become modernday Beijing. As the first publication of its kind, The Capital of the Yuan Dynasty presents the capital’s history using a thematic approach. Starting from Beijing in the pre-Yuan Dynasty period and the building of Dadu as a new city, the author introduces the layout of the city and imperial palaces, and then focuses on Dadu in detail from political, economic, and cultural angles. The Capital of the Yuan Dynasty references over 100 Chinese classics of the Yuan and succeeding dynasties, including Yuanshi (History of Yuan), Xijinzhi jiyi (Compilation of the Scattered Writings of the “Gazetteer of Xijin”), and Tongzhi tiaoge (Legislative Articles from the “Comprehensive Regulations”). Insights from contemporary prose, poetry and references from Goryeo Korea (Nogŏltae and Pak T’ongsa) complement the text. April 2014 | 224 pp | 7 x 10 | US$ 128
Before the arrival of the Mongols, present-day Beijing was the site of the Jin capital under the Jurchens. After it was sacked by Genghis Khan in 1215, the city was virtually laid waste. Later, the Mongols built a separate city north of the Jin capital site, which substantially overlapped the Ming-Qing city of Beijing. In 1267, Genghis Khan’s grandson Kublai Khan designated it as his main capital, Dadu, and went on to found the Chinese-style Yuan dynasty there in 1271. The city lost its capital status in 1368 when Mongol rule in China was overthrown. Originally written in Chinese and translated into English, this book is authored by a well-known SongYuan scholar in the PRC and is a worthwhile effort to systematically examine various aspects of Dadu, including its prehistory, construction, layout, and political, economic, and cultural life, and ends with a chapter devoted to a brief history of the city in the last days of the Yuan dynasty. It cites a rich body of modern, especially traditional, Chinese sources."

CHOICE for all levels/libraries
Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries. -- V.C. Xiong, Western Michigan University CHEN Gaohua is one of the best-known Chinese scholars in Yuan Studies. His book Yuan Dadu published in 1982 was translated into Japanese in 1984, and into Mongolian language in 1985. The English translation by Phoebe Poon is a creditable contribution to the research literature of Yuan history in the western world. The glossary of personal names, building names and official titles is a handy reference tool for general readers, and Yuan studies scholars may find it useful, too. -- Xian Wu, Michigan State University Chen Gaohua has provided an excellent textbook for all students and researchers on the Yuan capital and has opened up a treasure-trove of sources hitherto inaccessible to the English speaking world. His treatment of this early period sets the tone and style for the rest of the book which is solid with detail, decorated with primary-sourced quotations, and supported by plentiful citations. What soon becomes obvious and what marks this book out from all other studies of the Yuan period currently available in English is that Chen’s sources are all Chinese. -- George Lane, SOAS, University of London
