Knowledge Acts in Modern China

Knowledge Acts in Modern China book cover

Our new China Research Monograph, Knowledge Acts in Modern China: Ideas, Institutions, and Identities, is now available!

Coedited by Robert Culp, Eddy U, and Wen-hsin Yeh, this volume tracks the formation of academic and professional disciplines that have represented scientific rationality, technical regulation, impersonality, and intellectual enlightenment, all thought to be constitutive, as well as indicative, of modernity. The individuals portrayed here illustrate how modern systems of thought gave life to social institutions and generated new social roles and identities in China’s tumultuous transition during the first half of the twentieth century.
