|Summary:||"The authors in this collection interrogate moments in the long history of East Asian writing at which turning points in the lives of texts become perceptible. Taking Victor Mair's multidisciplinary research as a common thread, they assess the transforming effect of stories, customs, and 'outside' ideas on Chinese civilization over a nearly two-thousand-year period"--Back cover.|
