Short

A monumental work of scholarship that will prove invaluable for both research and teaching...Owen has selected texts that are central to the Chinese tradition and provided lucid and insightful commentaries.—Pauline Yu, University of California, Los Angeles

In addition to its intrinsic value for the study and appreciation of Chinese thought and literature, Owen’s book, which is sure to have a significant impact on a wide audience outside Sinological circles, should do much to raise awareness of creative and critical works of Chinese literature among general students of literature and nonspecialists in Chinese studies.—Richard John Lynn, China Review International

Jacket: Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, by Julie Sedivy, from Harvard University Press

Lost in Translation: Reclaiming Lost Language

In Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, Julie Sedivy sets out to understand the science of language loss and the potential for renewal. Sedivy takes on the psychological and social world of multilingualism, exploring the human brain’s capacity to learn—and forget—languages at various stages of life. She argues that the struggle to remain connected to an ancestral language and culture is a site of common ground: people from all backgrounds can recognize the crucial role of language in forming a sense of self.
