The most comprehensive study of Shifu available, this valuable work explores the life and political milieu of a central figure in Republican China. Krebs provides an intellectual biography of this committed revolutionary and analyzes the importance of Shifu's thought during the New Culture-May Fourth years as his followers fought for influence with the Marxists and later over the issue of alliance with the Nationalists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fascinating. . . . Dying early, Shifu never faced the choice of those colleagues who lived on, most of whom eventually had to choose sides between the Guomingdang and the Chinese Communist Party. Because of his early death, his ideas and his reputation have come down to us relatively unsullied, although somewhat ignored. This book provides a valuable service in reacquainting many with Shifu's life and putting his ideas in perspective. -- Lee Feigon, Colby College * American Historical Review *
This book eminently deserves reading as an important source for our understanding of Chinese anarchism and early socialism in China. It explores in considerable detail the human dimension as well as the depth of thought of the historical figures with whom it is concerned. In doing so, it assists us to appreciate the complex but uniterrupted search for wholeness of spirit in Chinese culture. -- Yasuko Shin-Nakagawa, Australian National University * Journal of Asian Studies *
Edward Krebs . . . has added a lively and highly readable biography of Shifu (1884-1915) to the growing literature on Chinese anarchism. . . . Its theses are well argued and supported. The writing is clear, elegant, and from the heart. . . . Krebs achieves a fine balance between touching tribute and dispassionate evaluation of Shifu's strengths and weaknesses. -- Gregor Benton, University of Wales, Cardiff * China Quarterly *
