"This elegant book embeds questions about gender in the history of material life, revealing still more of China's rich historical record on gender relations."—Susan Mann, author of Local Merchants and the Chinese Bureaucracy, 1750-1950

"Francesca Bray is exactly the kind of sinologist needed by cultural and social historians working throughout the world. Her book is both ambitious and accessible, making creative and discriminating use of cross-cultural comparison and social theory yet maintaining a sharp focus on concrete detail. For anyone interested in the history of everyday life or the history of material cuture, this is the book on China to read."—Peter Burke, author of Historical and Social Theory
