Tʻan Ssu-tʻung, 1865-1898: Life and Thought of a Reformer

E.J. Brill, 1996 - 260 頁
This book is the first full-length study in English on T'an Ssu-t'ung, a well-known scholar-reformer in late Ch'ing China. Based on a rich variety of primary sources, it traces T'an's progress from his early years to his summary execution during the palace coup in 1898.
The Introduction explains the premises and sources pertinent to this study, while the Epilogue provides an overall interpretation of T'an's life. The remaining eight chapters are organized in such a way as to allow a chronological and thematic appreciation of the book's subject matter. This is more than a biography of a remarkable individual. By placing T'an's personal experience in the larger social and political contexts, it also sheds light on an emergent intellectual community in modern China.
