This collection of splendid essays…succeeds in establishing ‘conservatism’ as a valid, though still very general and undoctrinaire, position along the spectrum of contemporary Chinese opinions… In what it tells us of certain individuals, and of the succession of generations over a period of roughly half a century, this collection greatly enhances our sensitivity to the inner tensions of China. It is an important and distinguished book.—Jermome B. Grieder
