About this item

This volume contains 10 essays that examine issues that have been marginalized in Chinese studies. Most of the essays were first presented at the Fourth World Conference on Sinology, held in September 2014 in Beijing, China, as “Exchange and Learning between 'East' and 'West': 400 Years in Retrospect.” Chinese studies and other scholars from Europe and Asia address various pertinent topics: Russian sinology and the contributions of Robert Morrison and Nikita Y. Bichurin; the hidden side of Tianjin (an essay written by Carl Arendt in 1870); Joaquim Angélico de Jesus Guerra, who created Portuguese renderings of classical Chinese texts; the Laozi; the “Xueheng School” of the 1920s; Niels Bohr's relations with China; the field of Chinese studies, including the history of Chinese-foreign academic interactions and European and French sinology; and China's foreign policy towards Europe. Two contributions are in German, and conference reports and a book review conclude the volume. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
