M. E. Sharpe, Jan 1, 1998 - Biography & Autobiography - 387 pages
This major new reference is the product of years of research, translation, and writing by a team of over 60 Chinese scholars based in North America, Hong Kong, Australia, and China. Compiled from a wide array of original sources, these detailed biographies present the lives, work, and significance of more than 200 Chinese women from many different backgrounds and areas of interest--including literature, painting, drama, embroidery, pottery, politics, science, religion, healing, cuisine, and music. Each entry is substantive and reflects careful research and the diligent gathering and synthesizing of the known facts of each subject's life. This book and another in the planning stage covering the years 1912 to 1990 are the first biographical dictionaries in any Western language devoted solely to Chinese women.
