Pang-White's new translation is an admirable acheivement. It is significant to the field because of its historical value as well as the value to contemporary feminist discourse suggested by Pang-White. * Guotong Li, California State University, Long Beach, Journal of Chinese Religions *
With this complete translation of the Four Books for Women, Ann A. Pang-White fills a longstanding and embarrassing gap in Western literature on traditional China. Her decision to include the commentary by the late-Ming literatus Wang Xiang adds immensely to the collection by affording a glimpse of its reception at the turn of the seventeenth century. The texts are preceded by Pang-White's thoughtful and evenhanded discussion of not only their historical value, but also their place in contemporary feminist discourse. * Paul R. Goldin, Professor of Chinese Thought, University of Pennsylvania, author of Confucianism *
