Kraus, Richard C.


"In Kraus's hands, the study of calligraphy becomes a metaphor for a much wider topic--the persistence of traditionalism in modern China. That traditionalism is obvious to anyone who has even a superficial knowledge of modern China; but it is vague and so diffuse that it is difficult to gain a satisfying intellectual comprehension of it. By focusing on a small aspect of that traditionalism--but an aspect with deep metaphoorical resonance--the author helps us to gain a more focused understanding of Chinese cultural life."--Richard Madsen, author ofMorality and Power in a Chinese VillageKraus, Richard C. is the author of 'Brushes With Power Modern Politics and the Chinese Art of Calligraphy', published 1991 under ISBN 9780520072855 and ISBN 0520072855.
