9789004097759: Conflict and Accommodation in Early Modern East Asia: Essays in Honour of Erik Z]rcher (Sinica Leidensia)

This collection of essays written by his former students and colleagues represent the many foci of interest that Erik Zurcher has shared with them during his tenure as professor at Leiden University. They include discussions of Confucian philosophy, Buddhist and Christian polemics, the spread of Jesuit literature and anti-Christian attitudes among the literati, Ming aphorisms, the Chinese pictorial of skulls and skeletons, the Ch'ien-lung Emperor's eightieth birthday celebrations, Sino-Korean relations, and the "little traditions" in Chinese historical development, secret societies and kongsi. The book demonstrates how Zurcher inspired a wide range of interests in problems of Chinese history from heterodoxy, to local development, to hsiao-shuo traditions, but always in the highest traditions of philological scholarship.

Review:

'"I see it...as a coruscation of scholarly fireworks, a many-colored fountain of brilliance representing the best of the Leiden tradition, to which the honorand has contributed so brilliantly himself."' Philip A. Kuhn, "Etudes chinoises," 1995. '"The variety and quality of the essays in this volume already constitute impressive testimony to Zurcher's influence as a teacher and colleague. That there should be four volumes is an outstanding credit to a man whose vigor in scholarship remains undeminished."' Valerie Steele, "Journal of Asian Studies," 1995."
