Description - Fu Shan's World by Qianshen Bai

Rather than seek a single explanation for the change in calligraphic taste, the author demonstrates and analyzes the heterogeneity of the cultural, social and political processes behind it. Among other subjects, the book covers late Ming interaction between high and low culture; the role of publishing, the Ming loyalist response to the Qing; and early Qing changes in intellectual discourse. In addition to the usual approach of art historians, it adopts the theoretical perspectives of such fields as material culture, print culture, and social and intellectual history.
