Editorial Reviews

Review

“Very inspiring and reaching well beyond the scope of the research.”
(Dominique Tyl Chinese Cross Currents 2009-01-01)

From the Inside Flap

"Edgerton-Tarpley's sharp, critical mind is displayed on virtually every page of this stunning-and eminently readable-book. By probing with great insight the range of cultural responses to the terrible North China famine of the late 1870s, the author makes a powerful case for the argument that events-all events-have multiple meanings."—Paul A. Cohen, author of History in Three Keys: The Boxers as Event, Experience, and Myth
