About the Author

Gail Hershatter is Professor of History and Co-Director of the Center for Cultural Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is the author of The Workers of Tianjin, 1900-1949 (1986), coauthor of Personal Voices: Chinese Women in the 1980s (1988), and co-editor of Engendering China: Women, Culture, and the State (1994).


"Hershatter provides a model of the use of a single theme as a window through which to experience and interpret the intellectual, political, social, and economic history of a given place. . . . Her approaches to historiography and theory are challenging and informative. The book is compelling, complex, and extraordinarily readable: a book to be bought, lent, read, discussed, and treasured."--Lenore Manderson, "Journal of Historical Geography
