"A very important study of one of the most important institutions in Chinese history, one without which the China we have today would certainly be a vastly different place."—Peter Bol, author of "This Culture of Ours":
Intellectual Transitions in T'ang and Sung China

Times Higher Education Supplement

Monumental. A nuanced revision of the intellectual, political and social partnerships that a core institution of Chinese history signified over many centuries. Many readers of Elman's study will be the field's insiders, but non-specialists will gain immeasurably from the author's lucid prose in a text that is comprehensively supported by translations of all Chinese and Japanese sources.
