A skilled observer and noted scholar of Chinese culture, Tsuen-Hsuin Tsien has contributed profoundly to the West's understanding of the East and vice versa. Having spent six decades as a professor and curator at The University of Chicago, he has been an indispensable resource on a wide range of topics that include Chinese paleography, paper, inkmaking, printing, cultural exchange, libraries, and biographies. Collected Writings on Chinese Culture contains distilled selections from Tsien's major works and journal articles, as well as his Memoir of a Centenarian, which traces Tsien's life from his youth in China through sixty years of scholarship at The University of Chicago. This volume is an excellent companion for anyone familiar with Tsien's work and also a welcome resource for readers unfamiliar with the author's writings and extensive impact within East Asian studies and across all of academia.

Born in China in 1909, Tsuen-Hsuin Tsien is professor emeritus in the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations and curator emeritus of the East Asian Library, The University of Chicago.
