Review:

..".[a] remarkable contribution to the historical study of the Han period in particular, and to the Chinese historiographical tradition in general." -- Monumenta Serica

"This is an extraordinarily rich and insightful book that greatly contributes to our understanding and appreciation of these issues in the study of traditional court memorials and addresses and of the traditional historical accounts of them. Importantly, this book clears up many long-standing misconceptions about the conception and role of fact and evidence in these court memorials and offers the makings of a master key for understanding and interpreting them on a wide range of issues." -- Philosophy East & West
