This is the first published volume on a variety of sources for Chinese women's history. It is an attempt to explore overt and covert information on Chinese women in a vast quantity of textual and non-textual, conventional and unconventional, source materials. Some chapters re-read well-known texts or previously marginalized texts, and brainstorm new ways to use and interpret these sources; others explore new sources or previously overlooked or under-used materials. This book is a valuable product witnessing the concerted effort of twenty some scholars located in different parts of the world.

Clara Wing-chung Ho is Professor of History at the Hong Kong Baptist University. She is the editor of several volumes including Biographical Dictionary of Chinese Women: The Qing Period, 1644-1911 (1998), and Windows on the Chinese World: Reflections by Five Historians (2009).
