Abstract

Abstract:

This essay examines recent scholarship on historical contacts between China and the West. The four books reviewed—a broad survey of the Western presence in China during the twentieth century; a collection of essays about religious contacts linking China with Europe and Russia; a book about how China’s Nationalist government used media to win international support; and letters of an American missionary during the Japanese occupation of China—paint a complex portrait of China’s interactions with the West and challenge our assumptions about China and the West as fixed units of historical analysis.
