How does one culture "read" another? This book is a series of conversations between a scholar from China and a scholar from the West, each reading texts from the other's culture. One of the key issues is the nature of religion and what we understand by that term in a world in which ancient religious and customs seem to be dying or under threat. Does literature and religion offer the possibility of mutual understanding--or merely illustrate our differences? These conversations between scholars are also between friends. And that, too, is important.
Lu Xun ( – ), “Jottings under Lamplight” Gatsby was overwhelmingly

A thousand-year history of how China's obsession with silver influenced the country's financial well-being, global standing, and political stability This revelatory account of the ways silver shaped Chinese history shows how an obsession with "white metal" held China back from financial modernization. First used as currency during the Song dynasty in around 900 CE, silver gradually became central to China's economic framework and was officially monetized in the middle of the Ming dynasty during the sixteenth century. However, due to the early adoption of paper money in China, silver was not formed into coins but became a cumbersome "weighing currency," for which ingots had to be constantly examined for weight and purity--an unwieldy practice that lasted for centuries. While China's interest in silver spurred new avenues of trade and helped increase the country's global economic footprint, Jin Xu argues that, in the long run, silver played a key role in the struggles and entanglements that led to the decline of the Chinese empire.

The PEN Award-winning author “proffers advice for journal keepers who want to develop material for later books or who simply enjoy logging life’s events” (Publishers Weekly) Leaving A Trace is a practical guide to keeping a journal successfully and transforming it into future projects. Each chapter features both narrative and tailored exercises for beginning and committed diarists. Beginners will turn first to quick ways to overcome inhibitions, get started and stay on course. Seasoned chroniclers will start diaries with a new slant: they will learn how to trigger inspiration with creative brainstorming exercises; how to note patterns in diaries they already have and how to shape their material. “Warning: if you buy this book, you might as well buy a journal at the same time. Alexandra Johnson’s lovely and practical prose will assist you in overcoming virtually every inhibition you’ve had about committing words to paper, and will inspire you to tell, in whatever form you choose, the important story of yourself.”—Elizabeth Berg, New York Times bestselling author “A gifted storyteller, Johnson provides examples on how the discipline of daily, reflective writing is crucial to nurturing creativity and skillfully weaves together the relationship between the creative process and the craft of writing . . . beautifully written.”—Library Journal “Help[s] writers find practical inspiration, discover pattern and meaning, and move the material of a journal into memoir or fiction . . . Valuable in all sorts of ways for anyone looking for the right words.”—Booklist “An elegantly written study of an increasingly popular genre.”—Kirkus Reviews
