Product description

The field of Sino-Hellenic studies attempts to link the ancient culture of China with that of Greece. Editors Shankman (arts and sciences, U. of Oregon) and Durrant (Chinese, U of Oregon) acknowledge that this emerging field is controversial. Thirteen professors from American universities contribute one chapter a piece for this college-level text. The topics under examination include philosophy, religion, the role of fate, and the lives of elite women in Chinese and Greek societies. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
