Book by Smith Joanna Handlin


"[Smith] convincingly proves that charity was a vibrant motivation for many in [the Ming] period." Chinese Cross Currents "Few if any equals in the scholarly studies of the actual working of local politics in late imperial China." -- Joseph McDermott Journal Of Chinese Studies "This is an extraordinary book which, in addition to adding a wealth of detail on life at the local level to the existing literature on the late Ming, also offers sophisticated analysis of the diaries on which it is largely based." -- Andrea Janku Bltn Of Sch Of Oriental & African Stds "This volume raises a great number of relevant questions with regard to China today." -- Andre Laliberte, translated by Jonathan Hall China Perspectives "The book adds... to our understanding of charity in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century China, but also to our broader grasp of Ming society." Chinese Historical Review "An extraordinary book." -- Andrea Janku Bltn Of Sch Of Oriental & African Stds "A contribution to the study of premodern China's social elite ... the book deepens our understanding of gentry identity." -- Helen Dunstan American Historical Review "An important, well-researched book that fills a void left by the lack of similar publications on this topic." -- V. J. Symons Choice

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
