David K. Schneider
ISBN: 9781604978391

"An engaging piece of scholarship," which "raises thought-provoking questions while demonstrating solid command of relevant texts." [Regarding the objective to] "establish that Du was troubled by a political system that allowed powerful families to live luxuriously at court while the people suffered amid deteriorating conditions in the mid-750s, and that he produced powerful art to register his objections," "Schneider has accomplished this and much more by reviving the question of how exactly Du Fu’s artistry relates to the grand political and social issues of his day." – Journal of Asian Studies Read More..

The Male Empire Under the Female Gaze:

The British Raj and the Memsahib
Susmita Roye and Rajeshwar Mittapalli
