Ping-chen Hsiung is Dean of College of Liberal Arts at National Central University and a Research Fellow at the Institute of Modern History at Academia Sinica, Taiwan.
"This book contains a feast for the reader... The Chinese past is seen by [Hsiung] as an alternative world that questions and complicates our sense of children and childhoods. The value of this subfield is that it opens up new windows on our humanity, nothing less." - H-Net Reviews "The author's encyclopedic reading has yielded a densely woven fabric of anecdote and story that iams to connect emotional worlds of the past with today's readers. The resulting book, which was extraordinarily popular in its Chinese version, also has something to teach English readers about the complexity of contemporary Chinese perspectives on Confucian traditions." - Journal of Interdisciplinary History "The appearance of Ping-chen Hsiung's excellent book, the result of more than twenty years of research, is indeed an occasion for celebration." - China Review International "This is a fascinating and well-researched book..." - Asian Affairs "A definitive work."--CHOICE
