The Allure of the Nation

The Cultural and Historical Debates in Late Qing and Republican China

Tze-ki Hon, State University of New York-Geneseo


"The Allure of the Nation is testimony to Hon’s decades-long research on the relationship between nation and history, a relationship about which every historian of modern China must be aware. [...] In total, the seven chapters of this book offer an alternative reading of China’s past where the dichotomies of revolution vs. reform, radicalism vs. conservatism, and East vs. West play a far more minor role than usually assumed."

 - Marc A. Matten, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Frontiers of Literary Studies,
Vol. 10.2 (August 2016)

The Šabdan Baatır Codex

Epic and the Writing of Northern Kirghiz History

Edition, Translation and Interpretations, with a Facsimile of the Unique Manuscript by
Daniel Prior, Miami University, Ohio


”Dr Prior in fact deals with his subject with extreme thoroughness. Not only does this book include a complete facsimile of the manuscript, it also contains a transcription into Roman script of the full text in the original language, with a translation and extensive commentary. A quite lengthy introduction gives the background to its text and its contents,  including very useful information about the complex history of eastern Central Asia during the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries, (...) He has dealt very thoroughly with the ms and produced an impressive work of very high quality.”
 - Stephen G. Haw, independent Mongolist, The Central Asiatic Journal, 56 (2013)
