China in and beyond the headlines by Lionel M Jensen( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the third volume of this popular series, leading experts provide fascinating and unexpected insights into critical issues in today's China. They address such key topics as civil society, consumerism, environmental adversity, ethnic tension, the Internet, legal reform, new media and social networking, nationalist tourism, sex, and popular culture, as well [as] the costs of urban gigantism, to portray the complexity of life in contemporary China--and how, increasingly, it speaks to the everyday experience of Americans."--Page 4 of cover
China's transformations : the stories beyond the headlines by Timothy B Weston( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This successor volume to China beyond the Headlines takes the reader even farther beyond the 'front stage' to explore a China few Westerners have seen. Seeking to bridge the gap between what specialists understand and the general public believes, the contributors challenge readers to move past the usual images of China presented by the media and to think about shared problems. In an entirely new set of essays, they explore such critical issues as environmental degradation, nationalism, unemployment, film and literature, news reporting, the Internet, sex tourism, and the costs of the economic b
China beyond the headlines( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text takes the reader beyond the headlines to explore a China few Westeners have seen. It argues that the great gap between what specialists understand and the general public believes has led to distorted and potentially dangerous misunderstandings of China

Beijing da xue yu Zhongguo zheng zhi wen hua, 1898-1920 = Peking University and Chinese political culture (1898-1920) by Timothy B Weston( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in Chinese and English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collapse of the imperial system in the early twentieth century fundamentally altered the relationship between Chinese intellectuals and the Chinese state. Confucian scholars enjoyed a privileged status in late imperial society, but in order to reap the benefits of their position they had to accept the limitations on their independence imposed by the imperial state. Thus when the Qing Dynasty was overthrown intellectuals faced both a loss and an opportunity. This dissertation focuses on the history of Beijing University (or "Beida") during the decades before and after the 1911 Revolution in order to study how the literati elite reacted to the cataclysmic shift in its relationship with the Chinese state

A Reexamination of Kim Ok-kyun: A Study of a Korean Intellectual and the Possibilities for a Regional History of Modernity by Patricia A Helfenbein( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kim Ok-kyun stands at the center of two major events in East Asian history, the first being the 1884 coup against the Korean government, and the second being the First Sino-Japanese War, as his assassination was one contributing factor to the outbreak of hostilities. Despite the importance of Kim in late-nineteenth-century East Asian history, he has been underrepresented in scholarship. In this study, I challenge the characterization of Kim's reform program as one that was simply pro-Japanese and argue for a close reading of his extant articles to illuminate the syncretic nature of his intellectual and political programs and how they changed over time. I examine this program by focusing on four aspects: the constitutive elements of Kim's intellectual program, his reform program for Korea, the methods he pursued to achieve these programs, and finally the change in his thought over time as he went from government official to revolutionary to refuge. I conclude with suggestions for future research based on my argument that his life and death reflect a regional history of modernity in East Asia
