Pressestimmen""Borders of Chinese Civilization" succeeds admirably in its primary task of constructing the dynamics of a critical moment in the history of China's laborious march toward the twentieth century. By making well-considered use of contemporary theoretical strategies and by examining a variety of non-traditional source materials, Howland has brought fresh insight into a complex problem."
