'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.Vom Verlag:
This collection of essays written by his former students and colleagues represent the many foci of interest that Erik Zuercher 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 80th birthday celebrations, Sino-Korean relations, and the "little traditions" in Chinese historical development, secret societies and "kongsi". The work demonstrates how Zuercher 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.
