9780521119047: Theorising Chinese Masculinity: Society and Gender in China

In the first comprehensive analysis of Chinese masculinity. Kam Louie uses the concepts of wen (cultural attainment) and wu (martial valour) to explain attitudes to masculinity. This revises most Western analyses of Asian masculinity that rely on the yin-yang binary. Examining classical and contemporary Chinese literature and film, the book also looks at the Chinese diaspora to consider Chinese masculinity within and outside China.

Review:

"Theorising Chinese Masculinity is a welcome addition to studies in gender--both globally and in terms of China specifically. The book is a boon for those teaching Chinese gender studies in that it offers accessible and stimulating insights into the iconography and representations of Chinese masculinity." Asian Studies Review

"Theorising Chinese Masculinity is a lucid and concise analysis of the cultural archetypes shaping Chinese masculinity....Louie's monograph is...essential reading for anyone with a serious interest in gender in China." Intersections

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book is a comprehensive analysis of Chinese masculinity. While there is a vast Eurocentric scholarship on gender and sexuality, there has been little work addressing these issues within the Chinese context. Kam Louie uses the concepts of wen (cultural attainment) and wu (martial valour) to explain attitudes to masculinity. This revises most Western analyses of Asian masculinity that rely on the yin-yang binary. Examining classical and contemporary Chinese literature and film, the book also looks at the Chinese diaspora to consider Chinese masculinity within and outside China. Its use of a largely indigenous framework to analyse Chinese masculinity makes it an exciting addition to this burgeoning field. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521119047
