Women in China's Long Twentieth Century Paperback / softback
Part of the Global, Area, and International Archive series
This indispensable guide for students of both Chinese and women's history synthesizes recent research on women in twentieth-century China.
Written by a leading historian of China, it surveys more than 650 scholarly works, discussing Chinese women in the context of marriage, family, sexuality, labor, and national modernity.
In the process, Hershatter offers keen analytic insights and judgments about the works themselves and the evolution of related academic fields.
The result is both a practical bibliographic tool and a thoughtful reflection on how we approach the past.
