推  荐  语




In this collection of closely connected essays, Professor Jiang Sun establishes himself as one of the foremost historians of the late Qing-Republic transition. He combines extensive textual knowledge and a command of foreign, particularly Japanese scholarship and history, to generate insights into how the historical actors were shaped by, but also engaged and deployed Chinese historical and popular practices to create the nation-state. 

——Prasenjit Duara, Duke University


本书中收录的文章彼此紧密关联,奠定了孙江教授在晚清民国社会转型研究领域顶尖历史学家的地位。孙教授将自身在文本方面的博学与对国外(尤其是日本)学术脉络与历史传统的掌握结合在一起,就历史主体是如何被塑造、又是如何运用、操控中国历史上的大众实践以创造民族国家的这一问题提出了深刻的洞见。

——杜赞奇(杜克大学)








In this essay collection, Professor Jiang Sun, a leading scholar in the field, makes new contributions to our understanding of China's modernity. Sun brilliantly weaves many small pieces of history into magnificent narratives of the key themes of modern China such as ethnicity, religions, and nation. Sun has a great ability of discovering the forgotten histories hidden in texts and of reconstructing history from the unearthed materials. These essays inspire us to reconsider ideological origins of secret societies, intellectual sources of the "Five-Race Theory," the soil of growing the Chinese communist revolution, and many other important issues. His knowledge of scholarship in Chinese, Japanese, and Western languages make this work unique, insightful, and significant.

——Di Wang, University of Macau


孙江教授是中国近代史研究领域的领军人物,他的这本著作为我们理解中国的现代性问题作出了新的贡献。孙教授巧妙地将细碎的历史片段编织成围绕着种族、宗教、民族等现代中国的核心主题所展开的宏大叙事。他极其善于发现那些隐藏在文本背后的被遗忘的历史,并能够挖掘相关史料对历史进行重构。这些文章启发我们重新思考秘密社会的意识形态根源、“人分五种论”(Five-Race Theory)的思想背景以及中国共产革命的发展土壤等众多重要议题。他对中国、日本和西方学术研究的了解成就了这部独特、深刻且厚重的作品。

——王笛(澳门大学)





In this book, Professor Jiang Sun, the foremost authority of conceptual history and memory studies in China, brings together a number of articles concerning crucial topics in modern Chinese history: race, nation, religion, power, memory and representation. These erudite essays are highly recommended reading for any student of modern China interested in the question not of what China "actually was" but of how it was represented, conceptualized, and committed to memory - and how this process shaped what modern China is. 

——Kai Vogelsang, University of Hamburg


孙江教授作为中国概念史研究和记忆研究领域的顶尖权威,在这本书中汇集了他的一系列论文,涉及种族、民族、宗教、权力、记忆、表象等多个中国近代史上的关键议题。这些文章旁征博引,对于兴趣点不在于中国“实际上是”什么,而在于她是如何被表征、思考和记忆以及这一过程是如何塑造现代中国的学生而言,极具阅读的价值。

——冯凯(汉堡大学)
