"Tobie Meyer-Fong's book provides deep insight into the cultural history of Yangzhou during the second half of the seventeenth century, a period less documented and studied than the century of wealth that followed." (The Journal of Asian Studies)
From the Inside Flap
The book focuses on the period between the conquest and the city’s commercial florescence—a moment in which Yangzhou was a center of literary culture that was consciously conceived as transregional and transdynastic.
The book shows how Yangzhou’s elite used physical sites as markers in the reconstruction of the city, and as vehicles consolidating power and prestige. Gradually, however, the gestures and sites of the postconquest elite were appropriated by the city’s increasingly powerful salt merchants and incorporated into a court-oriented culture centered at Beijing.
