Women in China from Earliest Times to the Present
Edited by Grace S. Fong and Ellen Widmer
Drawing on a library of newly digitized resources, this volume's eleven chapters describe, analyze, and theorize the enormous literary output of women writers of the Ming and Qing periods (1368-1911) that have only recently been rediscovered.
This important contribution to the study of early modern Chinese fiction and representation of gender relations focuses on literary representations of the prostitute produced in the Ming and Qing periods.

Drawing on theories ranging from cultural studies to sociology, this book offers a new understanding of gender in Maoist model theatre (yangbanxi) that acknowledges the complex interplay of traditional, modern, Chinese and foreign gender ideologies manifested in the works.
