What People are Saying About This

Rubie S. Watson

Göran Aijmer's new book on lunar new year festivities in Central China is by far and away the best available source on this topic in any language. Of particular interest is Aijmer's attention to ancestor worship and the everyday practices associated with the cult of filial piety. The book also breaks new ground by treating leisure as a legitimate subject of research in Chinese late imperial history.
