When true love came to China by Lynn Pan( )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most people suppose that the whole world knows what it is to love; that romantic love is universal, quintessentially human. Such a supposition has to be able to meet three challenges. It has to justify its underlying assumption that all cultures mean the same thing by the word 'love' regardless of language. It has to engage with the scholarly debate on whether or not romantic love was invented in Europe and is uniquely Western. And it must be able to explain why early twentieth-century Chinese writers claimed that they had never known true love, or love by modern Western standards. By addressing these three challenges through a literary, historical, philosophical, biographical and above all comparative approach, this highly original work shows how love's profile in China shifted with the rejection of arranged marriages and concubinage in favour of free individual choice, monogamy and a Western model of romantic love."--Page 4 of cover

Old Shanghai : gangsters in paradise by Lynn Pan( Book )

11 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dramatic events of the first half of the twentieth century in China -- the revolution that turned the Chinese empire into a republic, the war with Japan, the Nationalists' campaigns against the Red Army and the ultimate triumph of the Chinese Communist Party -- have been told in numerous books. What is exceptionsl about Lynn Pan's account is that she relates these events through a collage of interlocking historical portraits. Du Yuesheng, whose ascent to the summit of Shanghai's organized crime traced that city's own spectacular rise to riches; Wang Jingwei, who believed he was saving his country but was in fact selling it to the Japanese; General Dai Li, who ran war time Asia's most powerful secret police -- these are among the swirl of people and incident she brings vivdly to life ... Such is her eye for detail and her grasp of the Chinese psyche that the reader is lured on through this complex story as easily as if he were reading a thriller
