About the Author:

Carol Lee Hamrin is research professor at George Mason University, senior associate with Global China Center, and author of God and Caesar in China.

Stacey Bieler is an independent historian and author of "Patriots" or "Traitors"? A History of American-Educated Chinese Students.

Review:

"The third volume of Salt and Light provides invaluable information on the centrality of Christian leadership in the making of modern China. The Chinese Christians profiled here pioneered the first civic and social reform movements of the twentieth century. The recovery of their stories is a fabulous contribution to the history of Christianity as a dynamic force in Chinese history. This inspiring and informative book belongs on the bookshelf of everyone who cares about Chinese Christianity."

-Dana L. Robert
Truman Collins Professor of World Christianity and the History of Mission
Boston University

"For decades, Western and Chinese academics have ignored the positive impact of Christian missionaries on China, generally because of faddish ideological blinkers. But with the third and final volume of their groundbreaking work, Hamrin and Bieler have assembled ample proof--if any was really needed--that a reevaluation of how we've looked at China in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is not just needed, it's imperative."

-John Pomfret, The Washington Post and author of Chinese Lessons: Five Classmates and the Story of the New China

"This third volume of Salt and Light extends the contributions of this series to our better understanding of modern China. Bringing religion back into a comprehensive study of Chinese history and culture necessarily includes bringing Christianity back into this national story, and Salt and Light shows just how influential Christian faith and ideals were among a diverse set of leading Chinese intellectuals and social leaders in twentieth-century China. Social and intellectual historians will benefit from the careful research and engaging presentations of the chapters in Hamrin's collection."

-Timothy Cheek, Institute of Asian Research, University of British Columbia. Living with Reform: China Since 1989. --Wipf and Stock Publishers
