Under Confucian Eyes by Susan Mann
Book DescriptionThese translations of eighteen classical Chinese texts from the mid-ninth century (Tang dynasty) through the late nineteenth century (Qing dynasty) offer a comprehensive collection of primary sources focusing on gender issues in medieval and late imperial China. The book's title reflects the sometimes ironic relationship between Confucian viewpoints and women's visibility in Chinese historical documents. The texts, written by both men and women, show that Confucian values and scholarly practices produced a rich documentary record of women's lives. It includes a brief guide for use by students and teachers.

Talented Women of the Zhang Family, Paperback (September 2007)» View all books by Susan Mann
The history of China in the nineteenth century usually features men as the dominant figures in a chronicle of warfare, rebellion, and dynastic decline. This book challenges that model and provides an account of the era, history as seen through the eyes of women. It reconstructs women's intimate relationships, personal aspirations, and values.
