"Miranda Brown has produced a tidy study of the gendered nature of private and public space as expressed through mourning ritual during the Eastern Han period ... It reveals a detailed look at the dynamics of Eastern Han society and asks questions that will force scholars to consider evidence from material or nontraditional sources more seriously." -- China Review International"Miranda Brown has written a scrupulous and convincing analysis of key themes in the cultural history of the Han Dynasty ... Brown simply shows the crucial importance of gender to a host of Eastern Han values and practices." -- Journal of the American Academy of Religion ..".a refreshing, loving book. The author is to be commended for focusing attention on the Eastern Han dynasty ... The book should be savored, not only by scholars of early China, but also by those interested in Chinese social history more broadly." -- Journal of Chinese Religions ..".a valuable addition to the literature on the important subject of filial piety in China." -- American Historical Review "Brown's book is a careful study that masterfully engages its sources: commemorative inscriptions of the Eastern Han dynasty. Not content to accept previous generalizations about these sources, she rereads them with a critical eye and shows that Eastern Han men had a much broader conception of political association and service than previously thought. By looking closely at Eastern Han epitaphs and not being beholden to any previous assumptions about them, Brown successfully throws doubt on many conventional explanations of these documents." -- Keith Nathaniel Knapp, author of Selfless Offspring: Filial Children and Social Order in Medieval China
