In the early twentieth century, China was on the brink of change. Different ideologies - those of radicalism, conservatism, liberalism, and social democracy - were much debated in political and intellectual circles. Whereas previous works have analyzed these trends in isolation, Edmund S. K. Fung shows how they related to one another and how intellectuals in China engaged according to their cultural and political persuasions. The author argues that it is this interrelatedness and interplay between different schools of thought that are central to the understanding of Chinese modernity, for many of the debates that began in the Republican era still resonate in China today. The book charts the development of these ideologies and explores the work and influence of the intellectuals who were associated with them. In its challenge to previous scholarship and the breadth of its approach, the book makes a major contribution to the study of Chinese political philosophy and intellectual history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Cheek's excellent book contributes to our understanding of the roles which intellectuals at various levels of the elite played in China's modernization and the ways in which these roles and the scholarly enterprise evolved over time ... Such work becomes an increasingly important window to understand a China that is taking on a new global role in multiple arenas.' Elina Sinkkonen, The English Historical Review
"...as it is, this analysis of Republican thought constitutes an enormously valuable contribution to the field." - American Historical Review
