Monstrosity and Chinese Cultural Identity: Xenophobia and the Reimagination of Foreignness in Vernacular Literature since the Song Dynasty by Isaac Yue

"Using selected key figures from Chinese literature from the Tang through the Qing, Isaac Yue traces the increasing attribution of monstrous qualities to foreigners as a means to demean the Other while inflating the stature of Chinese cultural identity. Yue’s sharp observations on the evolving images of Zhang Fei, Sun Wukong, and Zhong Kui will surely inspire a reevaluation of the cultural relevance of the texts in which these figures appear." —Robert E. Hegel, Washington University in St. Louis
