A collection of essays about pioneering Sinologists, written by someone with personal knowledge of their quirks and foibles, and their valiant efforts to bring East and West together. These essays, previously published in scholarly journals as well as the Chinese popular press, reflect on the lives and scholarship of Hu Shi, William Hung, Francis Cleaves, Achilles Fang, Y. R Chao and his daughter Rulan Chao Pian, Patrick Hanan, L. Carrington Goodrich, Paul Serruys, Isabella Yen, Michael Lindsay, and women teaching at Yenching University in the 1930s. Full of vividly told anecdotes, Reflections at the Margins of Sinology should be a fun read to anyone interested in East-West relations and the history of Chinese studies in the United States.
