Worshiping the Ancestors: Chinese Commemorative Portraits

Worshiping the Ancestors: Chinese Commemorative

Published in conjunction with the June 2001 exhibition at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, this volume focuses on the Ming and Qing portraits that have recently been restored to their original brilliance by the museum's conservators. The text by Stuart (curator of Chinese art at the Sackler and Freer galleries) and Rawski (history, U. of Pittsburgh) explore the artistic, historical, and religious significance of the paintings and place them in context with other types of commemorative portraiture, a practice which continued into the 20th century until gradually replaced by photography. Beautifully illustrated in color and b&w. Oversize: 9.5x12.5

Mountain of Fame

Mountain of

Through biographies of China's most colorful and famous personalities, John Wills displays the five-thousand-year sweep of Chinese history from the legendary sage emperors to the tragedy of Tiananmen Square. This unique introduction to Chinese history and culture uses more than twenty exemplary lives, including those of statesmen, philosophers, poets, and rulers, to provide the focus for accounts of key historical trends and periods. What emerges is a provocative rendering of China's moral landscape, featuring characters who have resonated in the historical imagination as examples of villainy, heroism, wisdom, spiritual vision, political guile, and complex combinations of all of these.Investigating both the legends and the facts surrounding these figures, Wills reveals the intense interest of the Chinese in the brilliance and in the frail complexities of their heroes. Included, for instance, is a description of the frustrations and anxieties of Confucius, who emerges as a vulnerable human being trying to restore the world to the virtue and order of the sage kings. Wills recounts and questions the wonderfully shocking stories about the seventh-century Empress Wu, an astute ruler and shaper of an increasingly centralized monarchy, who has since assumed a prominent position in the C...

The Chinese: A portrait of Chinese society in the reform era

The Chinese: A portrait of Chinese society in

A lively first hand portrait of Chinese society by a veteran British resident correspondent. It starts at the bottom of the pyramid with a picture of the very poorest and ends with an account of the wealthy ruling elite. The books was written in 1998 but is still relevant today as the basic structure of Chinese society has not changed and the issues and challenges remain the same. It shows how China works in the context both of its long history and its more recent Communist past.

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States  #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.   In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty an...
