Review quote

"I believe this to be a path-breaking book in its overall contribution. The scholarship is sound, the presentations (intepretations) are interesting, and the book raises questions of import for both the specialist and the general reader. Aside from an earlier book by one of the contributors (Rey Chow), I can think of no other book in the field of modern Chinese studies that offers with the sharpness that this book does feminist perspectives on modern Chinese literature and, going a bit further, on our appreciation of modern China in general." -- Arif Dirlik, Duke University
