Review of Wai-yee Li's book
Academia Sinica in Taiwan recently elected Wai-yee Li to be its academician, which is widely considered as pinnacle of scholarly achievement in Sinophone world. Her book also wins Joseph Levenson Pre-1900 Book Prize in 2016, a coveted prize for China scholars. We need to account for the success of her book. My friend Xiaorong Li's review should be useful.
