About this product
- DescriptionThe reception of China in the West is very often dominated by Chinese scholars like Lin Yutang who defined the Chinese people as joyful beings and Chinese civilization as a civilization of joy.

These papers from the Bonn conference Melancholy and Society in China explore various aspects of this issue.
