Description:

""Cherishing Men From Afar," extremely impressive in its marshalling of basic Qing material, accomplishes something quite remarkable: the product of a postmodern critical sensibility, it will also satisfy the most traditional of scholars on sinological grounds."--William T. Rowe, Johns Hopkins University
