The Scholar's Mind PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Scholar's Mind free pdf Professor Frederick W. Mote (1922-2005) has been widely recognized as a key figure in the field of Sinology. He taught at Princeton University for thirty-one years and was a founder of both Princeton's Department of East Asian Studies and its remarkable Gest (East Asian) Library. His distinguished record of scholarly publication includes the co-editing, with Professor Denis C. Twitchett, of volumes seven and eight of the "Cambridge History of China". Although he is perhaps best known for his studies of the Ming dynasty, his special erudition, as demonstrated in his final book, "Imperial China, 900-1800", spans the Song through Qing periods. Generations of his students and colleagues have admired him not only for his learning but for his generosity in sharing his broad understanding of China. This wide-ranging collection includes papers by David A. Sensabaugh, Geoff Wade, Hok-lam Chan, Tai-loi Ma, Martin Heijdra, Chen-main Wang, Thomas Bartlett, Paul R. Katz, Alfreda Murck and Perry Link. Its publication stands not only as a tribute to Professor Mote but as a major contribution to the field of Sinology.

About Perry Link

Perry Link is The Chancellorial Chair for Teaching Across Disciplines at the University of California at Riverside. His work in Chinese language teaching, including his co-authorship of two basic Chinese language textbooks, owes much to the weighty contributions to the theory and practice of Chinese language teaching that F. W. Mote and his friend Ta-tuan Chen achieved. Link is also author of Mandarin Ducks and Butterflies (1981), Evening Chats in Beijing (1992), Banyang suibi (1999), The Uses of Literature (2000), and numerous articles on literature, cultural history, politics, and human rights in modern China.
