Images of Chinese women: a Westerner's view
"'Images of Chinese Women' shows remarkably coherent yet nuanced penetration of a realm that few academics or general critics have had the energy and courage to explore. . . . Scholarship is as ever with Bettina Knapp, utterly beyond the merely sound, it is exemplary. . . . The style is elegantly readable, quickly cumulative, each sentence newly pertinent."Michael Bishop
