Eastern Sentiments (Weatherhead Books on Asia)
Compiled in China in the fourth—third centuries B. The seventeenth-century Chinese Christian convert Zhu Zongyuan likely never left his home province, yet led a remarkably global life. Through scholarly activities and globalizing Catholicism, he was in contact with a complex—and contradictory—set of foreign and domestic forces.

In Forging the Golden Urn, Max Oidtmann traces how a Chinese bureaucratic technology was exported to the Tibetan and Mongolian regions of the Qing empire and transformed into a ritual for identifying and authenticating reincarnations.

King explores Confucian networks and the development of capitalist economies, democratic governance, and moral education. He analyses how Confucian ideas and values underpinning the foundation of East Asian societies—including social civility, political governance, the role of the family, individual self-cultivation, and moral regulation—matter to the modern social and political transformations of Chinese societies today. Yet the two have a great deal in common. Indeed, the Chinese revolution was a carbon copy of its predecessor until Mao became aware not of the failures of the Russian model, but rather of its inability to adapt to an overcrowded third-world country.
